Linking London and Hertford

Having lived for large parts of my life in Hertfordshire or London, a fair proportion of my images come from those areas.   I guess this should not be a surprise, but I think a lot of us (whether photographers or not) sometimes forget the interest and creative potential of what we can find on our own doorstep.  So it’s no bad discipline to have your camera with you when you go out at home, as well as when you travel away – a discipline which I know I need to work on myself!

Anyway, today’s image in some ways links Hertford and London together – it shows a pumping station on the New River at Ware, a small town just outside Hertford itself.  The New River was designed in the C17 to bring fresh water from Hertford into the east of London – an engineering marvel in its time, and frankly still very impressive today.  I liked the strong lines provided by the river, the bank and the railway line behind, with the vertical tower standing almost like an upended exclamation mark on the edge!
