I think this is one my very favourite views in London. This was my first attempt at sketching this view. My second is in this post.

Creating the Tate Modern in the old Bankside Power Station was a brave decision which has proved well worthwhile. However who ever thought of building the Millenium Bridge to create a walkway from St Paul's Cathedral on the hill all the way down and across the River Thames to Tate Modern - with a brilliant view looking back up to St Paul's - was truly inspired!

I'm fully intending to do a big work of this view one day! The external terrace attached to the Friends Room at Tate Modern may will be put to good use in this connection as the weather gets warmer.

This particular sketch was done on the day after the service in St Paul's Cathedral for those killed, injured and involved in the events of 7th July 2005.
