Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry.

How’s that for geometry!!

The Millennium Dome in the background has 12 supports (one for each month of the year) on its roof  and to my mind they look like small cranes. I photographed it from Greenwich Observatory and thought it was quite a blot on the landscape. It has had its ups and lots of downs – but has experienced a re-incarnation in the last few years. It is now used as a venue for big musical events, some olympic events were staged there, the up-coming ATP World Tour Finals (Tennis) start tomorrow and earlier this year they introduced climbing on the roof.

The Greenwich Power Station is to the left (one of the four chimneys) and it is still in service despite being over a hundred years old. You can find fascinating info about it if you click on this Port Cities link or the Wikipedia link (very similar info but has a lovely photo – click on it to enlarge it).

Here’s my version of that same photo

The O2 (Millennium Dome) and Greenwich Power Station, London

The delightful Meridian Primary School is in the far left foreground. Click on the photo to enlarge it if you want a better view of the school.

    Nice shot! I had to come for a quick peek because I visited it when it was first transformed into a venue, and really rather liked it. Though it has become unloved and unfashionable since. 🙂

      Thanks for dropping buy. I think the Olympics have helped its reputation…as well as having some tennis events there. Glad you liked the photo 🙂
