Empty Underground

I love London.
More than that, I love London’s Underground.

This ancient subterranean transport system has been a part of my psyche from the first time my Mum brought me up to the big smoke to see the pigeons of Trafalgar Square – remember them?
Since then the colourful, maze-like map and simple iconography have been a clear and constant theme throughout my life.

Recently, after moving to London, travelling on the Tube (as it is more commonly known), has become a daily routine. Having spent a good couple of years working out of town, it really is good to be back.

Back on the underground.

Another pleasant by-product of enjoying my favourite form of public transport is the fantastic photography of it all.

Over the course of last year I caught myself snapping here and there more often than not, when there is an absence of occupance. This in turn led to the creation of a Flickr group –  Empty Underground.

A collection of photos taken of London’s underground rail system all in that rarest of moments; emptiness.

There’s a whole bunch of amazing images from many different photographers. If you have some time, go check it out – and if you have any of your own, why not add them to the group?

See you around… on the empty underground.

More N93i vs N95 shots

Last post before I chip off to Canterbury tomorrow for my friend’s wedding and for the day, I have decided to give the N93i to my friend Dom. She works in TV and does a lot of filming… I know Dom’s been after one of these phones for AGES!

Back when the first video camera phone was announced.. The N90 was it?
Anyway, before I go, I thought I’d post up some more shots of the phone alongside my N95…
Enjoy!

More to follow after the weekend..

Kew Gardens

Managed to swing by Kew Gardens at the weekend… and very beautiful it was too.

A bit hot for my liking and I wasn’t there long but a nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon definitely…

All pictures taken and uploaded c/o my N95.
(sod being the landscape gardener there!) 🙂

And for all those Apple fans out there – more iPhone loveliness coming soon!

PROMISE!

Fave Photo So Far…

Ok – so you may’ve gathered – I’m home now – I’m still yet to write up Sunday’s events… (that’ll come at some point tomorrow I’m sure) …but I just wanted to post again quickly after having seen some of the photos that my friends sent round over the course of today, (Monday).

This one below is me and one of my closest friends, Al.

No comment needed… it simply says it all.
