I have chosen to drift slightly off topic for this pic of the day because I have just returned home from a visit to London. So what's nautical about this photo - actually quite a bit. On the right is Vauxhall Bridge and beyond it some of the latest riverside apartments. Centre stage the MI6 building, made quite famous by Bond 19: The World is Not Enough,

in front of it you can see a small jack-up doing something useful to it You may notice it is low tide; the foreshore is patrolled by treasure hunters who still find stuff dumped hundreds of years ago. Close to me you can see some bits of wood, which I feel sure is an old rudder - missed by the detectorists.

Photo taken on 3rd Nov 2018 and posted here on 6th Nov.
