you must be poisoned by rocks shouldn't be too difficult to find if you just follow that river isn't it?
you see, it is not good getting lost.. at the south bank area there are many gangs once you leave the relative safe areas.. when my friend living in that area brought me around the thames, he has never brought me beyond tower bridge.. and told me to stay out of areas that he didn't bring me to.. so maybe i will ask him if that direction (looks like away from the westminister side) is safe
to some of my friends, walking with a dslr is asking for trouble already, so if you look at home and pro, it will not be as dangerous as looking lost and with expensive (relatively) equipment
but zone 1 (where most of the london unis are) is quite safe, i guess.. so far the singaporeans here have only experienced.. pickpockets.. and witnessed atm muggings (i.e. you withdraw money and turn around to a fist, guy runs off with your cash / wallet/ both)
Judging from the distance from towerbridge in the image and the location of the ships docked, I guess it should be near Bermondsey Wall East or the peer along Cherry Garden Street, both just slightly off the image above. Search on google map to view slightly further down the river. If you walk along the Thames (south bank) to the east of Tower Bridge, you should be able to see them... (all guess work cuz i have not actually been at those rocks)
It could be low tide, so you see those rocks. The river thames isn't some small longkang like the singapore river, the current can be pretty fast, so it might not be too good an idea to stand around there in case you slip and . . . . . . .
if you notice the bank curves, so it's definitely along that straight stretch before the turn.. i think after i do a quick check with the people living at southwark area that i know i'll just go explore soon if the guy replies i'll post up his reply here though
for those who wish to take note, he replied ^_^Hi
There is a pub in Rotherhithe on the river called The Angel (great pub). At low tide you can go down onto the beach below. That is where these pictures were taken. You carry on down the river on the South Side from London Bridge heading East. It is off the tourist trail so watch out for kids but it is ok. Let me know if you have any luck.
er, a marks the spot
for those interested, i did some googling on the area, it is definitely not your usual tourist spot.. apparently a few years back it was still a hotspot for drug abusers.. but the community there has been trying to do a cleanup so crime has dropped. but there's still a lot of kids that do what they call "antisocial behaviour" or ASB in the uk. i have no idea what that means, but hrm.
I walked from Westminister to Canary Wharf one Sunday afternoon in May this year. Have to agree that it certainly doesn't feel safe.
