After a very pleasant meal at Carluccio's Caffe on Reuters Plaza, I grabbed a quick night shot of the area. Resting on a barrier, it's not a bad effort for a quarter of a second exposure with no tripod!
Canary Wharf is a large business and shopping development in East London, centred on the old West India Docks on the Isle of Dogs. From 1802, the area was one of the busiest docks in the world. By the 1950s, the port industry began to decline, leading to the docks closing by 1980. Rivalling London's traditional financial centre in The City, Canary Wharf contains the UK's three tallest buildings: One Canada Square (known as the Canary Wharf Tower) at 235.1 m (774 ft); followed by 8 Canada Square and the Citigroup Centre, both at 199.5 m (654 ft).
