When in doubt, add a big red bus
It's fair to say that the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf have been photographed to death, so I set out to find a more unusual viewpoint. Ironically, I had spent nearly half an hour waiting at this spot for the busy road to be clear of all traffic, when a solitary double decker bus came along. It suddenly struck me that the image had been lacking something all along. Now three iconic images of London were successfully juxtaposed in one photo: Canary Wharf, Christopher Wren's architecture, and a big red bus.
