London’s high wires

London’s North Greenwich peninsula is a place of wires and lines, or so it appeared on a recent visit. Its main feature is the O2 Arena, a vast domed building topped with protruding struts, tethered by a web of lines. You can take a walking journey over its roof. A group of people were tackling this feat, clad in light blue jump suits, taking in the views.

A handful of other thrill seekers were enjoying a fairground ride close to the arena, swirling madly against the bright sky. But the big new attraction is London’s cable car – or Emirates Air Line, which takes you across the water to Royal Dock. Its poles, wires and gently dangling cars are a pleasure to photograph.
