Docklands


My first visit to docklands on Monday, so I was intruiged to see how it compares to other financial centres. I’m disappointed – the bits I’ve seen all seem a little soul-less. Too much greenish glass and steel, with all the buildings looking like minor variations on a theme.
There are clearly folks looking at the waterways as a waste of space as well – the photo shows a newly annexed but of water with piling for, probably a steel and greenish glass building. Montreal and joburg both felt more stylish, and they are far from the premier financial centres of the world.
BTW this and other photos may get the bottom sliced off and replaced by a grey block by ‘intelligent’ blackberry cropping. I’ll replace with full versions when I’m home
