Battersea power station

A few images from my visit to Battersea power station earlier today; it was open to the public as part of Open House London and along with many thousands Londoners I couldn't wait to see it close.
It seems everybody had brought "the big camera" as well as the usual smartphones to immortalize the day. Just behind me one mother who was trying to fit her brood AND one of the chimneys AND the pigeons flying above in the same frame exclaimed: "Aren't I clever! I've got a souvenir of the family and one of the chimney before they change it all, all in the same picture!"

The light was very flat and dull, so the few chunks of bright colour really  stand out.
