The Regent's Canal

A good friend and the mild weather of May offered me the chance to take a walk along the Regent's Canal of London, whose existence I totally ignored.

We started from the London Fields area and walked westwards towards Islington.

On our way we came across some interesting bits of architecture, this one resembles the cranes used by the cargo boats of the canal.

We walked by some urban scribblings

and some spooky window shades.

The canal walk offers both a taste of the urban side of London

as well as lots of interesting living encounters.

When you approach Angel, the channel goes underground and the walking path is disrupted.

That's when we turned our heads back for a last view, before returning back to the normal urban structure.
