The Thames today

SUNLIGHT reflected off the Thames this morning – dancing gently on the waves to welcome autumn. Teachers trudged back to school for the first of a couple of INSET days, preparing for the return of children on Monday. It was a welcome, quiet moment to enjoy Tower Hamlets while the rest of the world went back to the 1970s – economic crisis, raging war, climate change and the threat of nuclear catastrophe. How can we explain to our children what a mess we are making of our planet and our species?

Today’s photo was taken on 1st September 2022, looking east from the Blue Bridge on the Isle of Dogs.
