Good Morning Everyone,

I'm not sure if this area has been posted before, maybe but I missed it!

This is an area of London called Little Venice, for obvious reasons. Little Venice surrounds the convergence of three waterways: the Grand Union Canal, the Regent's Canal, and Paddington Basin which meet in a large, picturesque pool, Browning's Pool (usually called by residents "Little Venice ).

The boundaries of Little Venice are unclear, however the majority of its buildings have a Regency style architectural style of white painted stucco facades.

From this starting point, we were able to get a 'canal bus' which took us along the Regent Canal, through Regent's Park and the zoo, to Camden Lock. It's a lovely peaceful journey, a very different aspect of London, away from the hubbub of the city and relatively unknown.

Have a lovely day, Bev :-)

Good morning Bev,
Charming scene along this calm urban canal. How great the blue bridge reflects into the water! Well taken.

Hi Beverly. Macon told me that whilst in London I should go off the tourist track and visit Little venice. Unfortunately we had no time to do that and looking at your photo, it is our loss. Attractive part of London, beautifully caught. Love the colours and reflections. Fine composition. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Bev,there are little Venice everywhere but i'm sure that you know what i think about that,i'm italian and there is only one Venice..eheheh...but in effect this corner reminds a bit something of the Laguna,a lovely view very rich and made in the usual top sharpness. Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano.

Witaj Bev!
I love bridges, beautiful construction.
View makes impression.
Curious fragment of town.
Excellent frame, colors and light.
Well done.
Warm regards.

Hello Beverley,
Nowadays, this place is a tourists attraction in London - I remember walking along the section close to regent park back in 1978, and its was not looking as cared as you show here. And that's an understatement.
Picture space was superbly "employed" with fine sight of the elegant boats, painted bridge and its blue reflection,and the decorated promenade. Charming picture, loev it.
My best regards,

Hello Bev,
This is a part of London I had never heard of before. It looks very different from most of the city and I would have expected this to be just a small town. The blue bridge is probably the greatest eye-catcher, and it is very nicely reflected among the green algae. But there are fine details everywhere in this well balanced photo.
Kind regards,

Bonjour, chère Bev,
C'est vrai que l'on dirait une petite Venise avec ces canaux qui permettent de découvrir la ville en douceur et avec bonheur !
Un choix judicieux de cadrage.
Jolie embarcation au premier plan.

Heelo Bev,
A well composed scene very nicely framed. I like the lights and colours and the reflections of the blue bridge in the green waters of the canal basin. I have to say I have never visited this part of London; I really must make an effort and go there one day.

Hello Bev,

I can not remember that you posted this picture.
Venice in London sorry but I know nothing of London.
Sharpness and clarity are excellent.
Also splendid green around the bridge.
Composition and presentation are superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Kindest regards,

Bonjour Beverly

J'ai comme l'impression que si il y a un canal en quelque part, il y a tentation de faire un rappel avec la sérénissime.Et pour cause à certaines occasions.Mais l'endroit garde un petit côté très britannique.

Hello Beverley,
I've heard about this part of London, but never been there. I am visiting London in the beginning of July, so maybe I can go there then, because it looks so charming with these small boats, stately houses and the blue bridge. Very well captured and composed too.

Hello Bev,

good image of this area of London, I didn´t know about it, I like the composition with the blue bridge in the back, well seen,

Best regards,


Ciao Bev
non basta un ponte, anche se bello e colorato, a fare di un luogo una piccola Venezia!!!
In ogni caso si tratta di un bel luogo, una parte di Londra che non avevo mai visto e che mi piacerebbe vedere.

Hello Bev,
Interesting view from this Little Venice, I have had no idea that it is such a place in London. Always pleasure to see the narrow boats :). Nice bridge.

Hi Beverly

The dual sides of the canal add lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the bg blue bridge in the distance. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The red burgundy colours of the boat at left add a nice warm cold color contrast to the bridge. Tfs!

Ciao cara Bev, great view of lovely place, relaxing atmosphere, fascinating reflections, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend,have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Beverley,
Closer to where I live there are two 'Venices of the north', Bruges and Amsterdam. Now there seems to be also a 'Little Venice' in London.
I must admit I have never heard of it before. Interesting to know.
Your picture is very well composed and shows a calm scene of a city by the water.
There are many attractive elements but the most beautiful is the reflection of the blue bridge on a spot in the canal that is surrounded by many waterplants.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Bev

Nice view of the Regent canal at the starting point. We walked from here to Camden lock in May 30th, very different from the tourists views of London.
Warm regards

Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.
