Black and White- #7 Battersea Power Station

Battersea power station by susan sheldon nolen

Battersea Power Station, so old, and now so modern. I wanted to capture the feeling of London back in the early 1900’s with this photograph. This power station is no longer in use, and was due for demolition a few years back. Thankfully it’s now under development for luxury flats and shops. Modern life has saved the old Victorian Smoke Stacks from demolition. The old smoke stacks were in bad shape and part of the development package was the restoration of these chimneys, and at a frightful cost! So for another hundred years or more to come…Battersea Power Station for all to enjoy and for a few lucky ones- home.

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.
