City Cranes

 Cranes over Bank
 A Pair of Cranes over Blackfriars
St Mary le Bow with a Crane

On a chilly Sunday afternoon heading down Threadneedle Street and ending in the Tate Modern. For people who like cranes (small boys/grown men) and those who like to draw them (me) the City has got to have the most per square inch in the country. Stationary cranes afford the chance to study them in reasonable detail but when they get moving, thats when the excitement really kicks in. The flight patterns over the corner of Lombard Street were nothing short of orchestral.

The Rising Sun over Carter Lane




The Rising Sun over Carter Lane.

I went out to paint from Blackfriars Bridge this afternoon but spotted this cosy little group before I got there. Bright and rather cold but I know I wouldn't have survived very long over  the Thames today. Alright, it wasn't that bad ... I shouldn't be so weedy.
