High Up Above Forest Gate

I love the way London looks so different when it's possible to look down onto its streets.

Part of Durning Hall Community Centre in Forest Gate includes a homeless hostel, an unlovely Sixties tower block that nevertheless provides just such an different viewpoint. For the nine years I've worked at the Centre, I've been hoping for an opportunity to get up onto its roof with a camera, up amongst the mobile telephone towers, and on the pretext of collecting prospective images for our next annual report, I finally had a reason to do so today. Here are some of the results (click on photos to enlarge):
