#towerbridge, originally uploaded by kellan.
Yesterday I was wandering around London’s Southbank, and whilst idly checking on the movements of friends through the pre-christmas throng, I noticed that @riverthames was headed for a low-tide.
I wandered to the steps near @towerbridge and took some photos – including a long photo of the waves of the river lapping against the rocks at my feet, and went for coffee at the Design Museum.
I read the paper, and checked twitter again. @towerbridge said that it was going to be opening shortly. I bolted out and caught the occasion on camera.
The city is here for me to use, and it tells me so.

I agree with this post entirely.
I live near Tower Bridge and often ‘use’ Twitter to help me know what’s going on. Most often when my Dad is staying. He’ll often ask what ship that is going under the Bridge. Now, thanks to the internet, I can tell him.
I Twittered @towerbridge the other night when this happened http://www.flickr.com/photos/benterrett/3121449332/ and it felt good.
Nice ambient sound there.
I think you’ll find the accent on the e in derive is on the first e.
Thanks Lucy… corrected!
The photo of your feet reminds me oh so much of one I took (and have now lost) by the banks of the thames whilst working on the site designs for http://bak.spc.org/ oh so many years ago. Thanks for reminding me about exploring the thames bank at low tide.
