Quite literally 'hanging-out' over the Old Kent Road today, taking photos of a development for a big construction company. You can't get in to London past City Airport without using a 'Twin' and in this case it was the standard noisy Seneca II, borrowed from Stapleford, with the rear door removed.
From a photographer's perspective it's all a bit tricky. First of all, there's a large wing just forward of the door, with the port engine throwing out heat ripples behind it. Secondly, there's nothing between the photographer and the ground, a thousand feet below, except a worn-looking seat belt and thirdly, the only way you can get a decent shot straight down is have the aircraft tip almost on its left wing, with the result that after a few minutes of these higher 'G' manoevers, said photographer starts going a tinge of green.
I doubt readers have any photographic interest in an Old Kent Road gasworks being demolished, so here's one I shot earlier on a local theme, the Winter Gardens in Margate
And for anyone interested, here's a passing shot of the Olympic site at Stratford. It's coming along as you can see but it was very hazy today.
