And where there is boats, there is repair. In a hidden corner between Thames and canals a place to repair houseboats and make new of old.

This is a completely different take on the creative possibilities a walk along the canal opened for me, that of exploring the reflections in the water.

Continuing in my little series about London canals, I find that the long boats add a romantic touch to most sides, blurring the lines between living on land in a house and on land and living on the water. Two worlds existing next to each other.

One of the integral parts of the London canal world are the house boats which are anchored everywhere and which form part of the landscape.

For me one of the great charmers of London are the many canals which offer endless possibilities for walks, wonders and simply give the city a lot of charm. As a photographer they also give me the opportunity to explore the city from a different angle and to play with reflections.

Building on my mini-series, this is another look of London. And while I was drawn to the patterns the lines, colours and shapes make, I continue to wonder what this says about London. Would you know this is London, if I had not said so?

In sharp contrast to my previous photo, this pattern shows both traditional and new London coming together. What does it say about the city? Would we know this is London, if I had not said so?

Another aspect of London I like to explore photographically is that of patterns I find in buildings or combinations of buildings. What do they tell us about London? This is a very typical traditional street in London. A pattern all of us staying in London for longer will grow used to.

Following up from the previous photo, this is the same place after the sun had gone down. I was drawn to the reflections of the lights in the water, multiplying and changing the effect of the traditional looking lamps and giving the scene a sense of timelessness.

London, like Rio de Janeiro, is a city of many faces and one I don't get tired of photographing and studying from all angles. This one of my attempts to explore the romantic, timeless aspects of London.
Continuing my little tale about fog in London, the fog had turned the tube station into a winter wonder land with a narrative of surreality.

Continuing to build on my narrative about a foggy day in London. This was an amazing experience. The fog worked like a filter and since it was already late afternoon, the park took on a light shade of grey.

Continuing to work on my mini-series on fog in London, this photo was taken on a late afternoon in early winter when the park suddenly seemed to disappear in thick white air.

Going back to working on a series, I've decided to start the new year with a mini-series on a foggy day in London. In early winter I was on my way home when I noticed that the park had seemingly 'disappeared' behind a thick white cover.
