My first posting here, and it was on this site that I saw the first pictures of it.

The Connaught Tunnel was a part of the North London Line and runs directly under the cill of the passage between the Royal Victoria Dock and Royal Albert Dock. It was closed for urgent repairs when it was discovered that ships were scraping their keels on the tunnel roof. It currently awaiting redevelopment by Cross Rail. The middle part of the tunnel is iron ringed and was constructed in almost the same fashion as the deep level tube lines. The track is still largely intact in the northbound tunnel; surprising considering that rationalisation of the line resulted in only the southbound tunnel being used for passenger services from 1969, and that goods services ceased using the northbound tunnel in 1993.
This was a new direction for me and my son (we're a bit of a "lads and dads" unit), but we were accompanied by someone who had some tunnel experience. We had a cool time and it was our first chance to have a crack at photographing in total darkness using light painting and I like to think we had a bit of a result. I was pleased as I was using a point and shoot Canon Powershot which had various long exposure settings and a Duracell 160 lumens daylight torch for the lighting. We're not experienced or professionals so go easy on the critique - lol ;-)

Hope you like the images.
