We used the tube only two or three times during our stay and much more preferred the busses, when we weren't walking. If we were lucky to get the seats on the upper floor in the front of the bus, we thoroughly enjoyed the panoramic view we had on the ride.
Mind you, during rush hour you are better advised to go on foot because that is then much quicker!

Great capture of the "whoosh" of the train as they speed by. Sounds like you had fun on your trip. Looking forward to seeing more.

Hi Kelley, that was the difficult part and I am pleased you think I captured it. Thank you for your comment.

I love the movement you've captured in this one. Karin

Liza Hirst said...

Thank you, Cindy! I liked your "Influence map", to which I could relate very much!

Liza Hirst said...

Karin, my dear, thank you! Nice to hear from you - do come by again, if you feel like it when you're in town!

How fabulous Liza,

such a feeling of movement and the light that's peculiar to the tube in London.

Lovely.

I am pleased you like it, Barbara.
It's interesting to notice how different the atmosphere is in the individual underground stations of the cities of the world (not that I have seem that many, mind you). The smell differs, the sound of the arriving and parting trains does, the light is different and, last but not least, the people of course!
