Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

If you ventured west, along the south bank of the Thames, Battersea Power Station was an impressive site that would have certainly attracted your attention.

At the moment, it is undergoing massive changes.

'The £9bn project to revamp the Grade II listed building – more than it cost to build the stadiums and stage the 2012 London Olympics – is the centrepiece of a mile-long development of offices and apartment towers on the south bank of the Thames stretching from Vauxhall to Chelsea bridge.

After four years of construction, the development is now starting to take shape and the first 100 residents have just moved in to a luxury apartment complex alongside the main building, called Circus West Village. And for the first time in 90 years the power station’s riverfront, with a new piazza and parkland, is now accessible to all.' - from the Internet.

The site was full of cranes and guys in hard hats but this section really stood out to me. I'm not sure what the construction would be but the patterns and the texture of the rivets begged attention.

The rectangular shape, framed the some of the cranes, like ballet dancers on a stage.

I used the solarisation option on Color Efex to give more drama to the scene. Or, you may like it better in bi-colour, as seen in the w/s.

My warm regards, Bev :-)
