I miss the tube. While visiting Harry Potter Studios (.. yes, I know) I saw a Mad Hatter at the Watford Junction Station. Where else could this possibly happen!
Ahh, the Magic of London
Fab…have you ever seen the stuffed dog at Slough station? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slough_railway_station#.22Station_Jim.22
And now I have anOther reason to visit London again *grin*
… Station Jim, is on the list !
Absolutely (although Slough is a terrible place in my experience! Apart from Station Jim – sorry people of Slough, happy to change my mind if you can offer further wisdom on the matter) Have you ever been here? http://www.soane.org/ If not add that too, it’s ace!
I love these candid everyday photos. It’s easy to photograph a striking landscape well, but it’s so much more difficult to capture the subtle beauties of common things! Something I’m trying to do with my shoddy camera. Do you have any tips?
Thank you. I have the opposite problem. I often find it difficult to capture a landscape the way that I want to but seem to find people really instinctive. My main tips would be to take lots and lots of shots, 99 will be rubbish but 1 will capture something special. I would also say that you can do wonderful things with any sort of camera (even a pinhole one in a shoebox…in fact perhaps that should be my next project!) It is really difficult to quantify the other stuff but some rules that work for me are…Be playful, stay curious, experiment.
Thank you for the advice! My camera’s a little more advanced than a pinhole camera (although not by much) so I think the real problem might be my impatience. I hope to experiment more with people soon (and implement your tips), so please check back with my blog as I’d greatly appreciate your advice. And of course, I’d love to see the shoebox project come to fruition!
I look forward to seeing results. Loving your writing…gives me some fantastic pictures in my head. Painting pictures with words. Brilliant. Right, off to find a shoebox!
these are amazing!!
Me. Most Sundays.
Fantastic. I shall have to stalk you
Love the tube shots! Can one miss riding the tube? Thrills me to see black and white photography..and a big thanks for stopping by my blog and by doing so, discovering your amazing black and white shots!
Thank you very much. Ha…I think that missing riding on the tube is def possible. Not always easy to remember that in the middle of rush hour though!
Looks like it was the ending of a tough day.
Took three stops to wake her up!
Well, in fairness, it takes me 4 cups of coffee to wake up.
Takes me three cups of Earl grey and about 4 hrs!
Maybe that was her problem, needs to discover coffee.
