There is something about sunsets that can make even a city look glorious. The colour concentrates in the sky and for a few intense moments the cityscape is thrown into silhouette. Just add water and the effect is doubled. This view of Battersea Bridge and Chelsea Wharf is very familiar to me. I used to live in a pub at the end of Albert Bridge and when I was courted, we would often linger over the river on the way to work or on the way home, just to spend a little longer in each other’s company.
