Proving that citizen journalism reaches the places traditional news can’t, Shit Londoner James Melly sent us these stunning images from Limehouse and reports….
“A couple of Saturdays ago I spent the evening watching the tediousness that was the France vs Spain Euro 2012 quarter-final in The Narrow (the riverside Limehouse pub that Gordon Ramsay hasn’t managed to completely ruin), unable to numb my senses because I am off beer for a couple of weeks. However my spirits were lifted on my way home by the site of this lovely lady resting on the debris that was lapping around the front gates of Limehouse Lock. It was a bit dark to take a decent picture which is why the first one is a bit speckled, so I popped out again in the morning, to find that the arrival of a boat had let her into the lock itself and I was there just in time to watch one of the lock-keepers removing her with a pole.”
Outstanding work James!
