Stunning Photos Of London Docklands

We're often sent impressive photos of the capital, not to mention the 115,000 images in the Londonist Flickr pool. Luke Agbaimoni, however, offers something rather special. His superb images of Docklands use long exposures, unusual lighting and foggy conditions to make this often sterile region appear magical.

In his own words:

I used to live near what was Surrey Docks, so I was always aware of the Docklands growing up. As I got more into photography it always amazed me how overlooked the Dockland areas were when it came to showing off London. The Docklands boast a great contrast of old and new, modern and historic, manmade and organic, so make a great subject for landscape images. [A favourite is] the bridge opposite the Excel Centre which has a fantastic cityscape view of Canary Wharf and the O2 centre. It’s best viewed at sunset.
