Nine Elms Wander
Nine Elms, London. Fri 21 Dec 2018
The development along Nine Elms Lane covers a huge area, close to
a square mile
and includes the US embassy
where police cars are parked waiting for a protest. But there were
no protesters at the time it was supposed to
start. I waited for around ten minutes, then decided to go for a walk
around the area and come back
later for the protest
I've photographed these blocks of flats from the train, but this was
the first time I'd walked by them
'The Residence' is next to the US Embassy, but the ambassador lives
in Regent's Park
It was windy and the US flag was flying well in front of the embassy
There were still no protesters around, so I took a short walk by the
The development area stretches to the former power station at Battersea
I photographed a ship which made regular daily trips bringing gravel
to this pier from the Thames estuary a few years ago
Back at the embassy there were still no protesters. One I knew arrived
a few minutes later also looking for the protest.
After around an hour waiting, I walked back up to Vauxhall Station to see
if I could find any protesters on their
way, but met none and so I caught the train home.
