A Skateboard Graveyard & Statue of Anteros (Eros) | Photos of London

This must be where skateboards come to die.

The next time you walk along Hungerford Bridge near Embankment station, look down and you might see a pile of skateboards abandoned. Oddly enough there doesn’t seem to be a lot of information on the internet about this so if you know anything further, let me know in the comments section below!

Did you know this isn’t actually a statue of Eros, the god of sensual love? It is in fact his twin brother Anteros, the god of selfless love. Anyhow I think it’s beautiful and I really like the crisp blue sky behind it. I’ve managed to capture some of the details but I like the dark shadows in places making it looking silou-esque.

I missed a photo opportunity but the bird was perched and had it’s wings wide open! Still, I manage to capture it and also a plane flying over The London Eye in if you look closely enough.

I must already have a million shots of Big Ben, but it’s such an icon it’s hard not too whenever you see it.

This must have been a particularly sunny day as you can see from the different shades in the clouds and the light reflecting from the River Thames.

Walking the cobbled streets of Butler’s Wharf, I saw this shop window – Le Pont De La Tour is a French restaurant.

Having just attended the Harry Callahan exhibition at Tate Modern, I was on the look out for reflections. I think turning this monochrome has really come out well with the dark building contrasting with the bright white light source.

I was walking away from St Paul’s Cathedral and spotted it’s reflection in a cafe window. I liked it because it has a double-almost 3D-like effect to it.

The Royal Opera Arcade always catches my eye walking back to Victoria station late at night – it’s fabulously lit up at night – particularly during Christmas when fairy lights twinkle. I also like the elegant gold gates which secure it at night.

Walking towards Blackfriars station, there are two silver dragons. I managed to snap a speeding car whizzing by.
