These photos were taken with Rolleiflex TLR cameras (an Automat from 1948 and a 2.8F from 1974) and a Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta IV rangefinder from the 1950s. The film was either HP5 or FP4 developed in Rodinal. I was experimenting with pushing the film and extended dev times. The Automat Tessar has harsh bokeh.

Mostly from the South side of the River Thames. Unlike the North side where common space had been appropriated for private development, there was (almost) a public path from Tower Bridge to The Thames Barrier and beyond. Samuel Pepys often walked between Deptford and Greenwich. Drake left for the Armada down his eponymous steps by Deptford Reach. Such rich history. Sadly, much of what I have photographed has disappeared already, consumed by property developers, particularly on the Greenwich Peninsular
