as you read back in September I saw the Poppies at the Tower of London with my Mum, yesterday I went back there with Simon, he hadn’t seen it and as it was getting close to finishing we thought we would take a trip up to London to see it.
From Southend depending on how many stop the train it takes about 50mins from Southend Central to Fenchurch street station, we caught the 2pm train and by 3 o’clock we were taking pictures of the Poppies.
I decided to take my Canon 450d with the long lens this time, before I had my new Panasonic and although the pictures are good, the long lens on the Canon is better.
There were definitely more people this time and loads more Poppies. You can find out about the installation here http://poppies.hrp.org.uk/about-the-installation I’ll warn you now there are going to be a lot of photos……
Although the Poppies on the ground are amazing just for the sheer amount of them, where you see the “waves” of them are something else.
As you get round the back of the castle you can see where they are still putting them in
Here are some close ups
