  4. Well done. It's strange to see those smokestacks and not see any smoke coming out of them. It must have been quite a sight during its heydey.

  9. Battersea Power Station is such a photogenic icon. I have taken loads of pics of the crumbling power station from lots of different vantage points, but never from where you took your pic. Nice pic...

  14. Hi Emm! I remember the first time I went to London, then staying in a very high floor of the thyen Penta Hotel, that the most incredible view was towads Battersea Power station; can understand why you wanted a decent picture of it... ;)

    Sorry for the absence: out one week, busy on return and then caught by the flu... ;)
    Blogtrotter Two is still in Algiers... Enjoy and have a great weekend!

    PS: If you have been in Novi Sad for the Festival, you should come to Rock in Rio Lisbon... ;)

  15. Hi Emm,

    did you take this picture? It's perfect. I've always wanted to take a picture of the power station myself. Could you tell me which train you were on. Maybe I can have a shot myself then.

    Cheers,
    Ralph

  18. @ And Miles To Go: I love trains too and I far prefer commuting by train over driving!

    @ Kiki: Thank you!

    @ David: I agree. It is one of London's most iconinc landmarks but judging from the comments, perhaps only to people that have lived or worked here?

    @ Phoenix: Aaah. Thank you!

    @ AVCr8teur: Yes, it has been out of commission for many years but it is a listed building, I think and so a landmark.

    @ Ryan: Yes, I think you are right.

    @ Ash: Yes, it is just, um, south of Victoria.

    @ Steve: Now that sounds like fun. Don't they have "affordable fairs" these days?

    @ Betty: Thank you!

    @ Sheila: Ha! I have so many photos of the inside of train windows, trying unsuccessfully to capture the power station. I really need to get out and about more.

    @ William: Thank you! I always love seeing other people's photos of Battersea. In fact, you and the other London bloggers really inspire me!

    @ Joy: No, I don't think so. It is most likely heading to Victoria at that moment but also, it looks like a Southern train which goes into Surrey (I think).

    @ Tina: Definitely! It is quite imposing.

    @ Lauren: Ha ha! Well, it is out of commission now so the area is retail and residential, mainly.

    @ Mo: It is on Ebury Bridge off Buckingham Palace Road. I walked due South from Victoria and then turned left into Ebury Bridge.

    @ Trotter: Sounds fabulous!! I wonder what that hotel is called now?

    @ Ralph: It is not from a train, it is from Ebury Bridge, just south of Victoria Station. I take 99.5% of the photos on this blog :)

    @ Deepak: Thank you!

    @ JaPRA: Yes, finally :) And thank you!

  19. This picture was among your recommended blog posts... love it! Battersea Power Station is such an iconic place. I walked around the area for many hours once, trying to find a decent spot from which to take a picture... ended up on the opposite bank...
