Isle of Dogs
No one really knows why this part of London is called the Isle Of Dogs, Theory's range from Henry VII lodging his hunting dogs here to grim stories of dead dogs being washed up on its shores, its most likely though, that the name is a variation of earlier names for the area. Today The Isle of dogs is better referred to as Canary Wharf...because of all the dead canary's that wash up on....
Whatever the reason for the names, this week I was shooting in the East India docks area that has been redeveloped to form an impressive campus of newly constructed buildings, interlinked by the original waterways.
Its an oasis of calm in an otherwise vibrant and bustling area.
