Nocturne by ottoberkeley

Night shot of Poplar Station footbridge, East London.

I’ve photographed the location during the day, when harsh light was streaming through the glass. For this shoot, I thought it might be fun to visit in the evening once the outside of the tunnel had faded away and the lights inside the tunnel had been switched on.

Half-Life (Redux) by Turnipfarmer

Passeig de Gràcia Metro Station, Barcelona, Spain – http://ift.tt/V5qrF7

One to add to my ‘Conceptual Fabrication’ architectural series and actually an image that I took couple of years ago from my trip to Barcelona.

Barcelona is such a wonderful city and really enjoyed my stay there, I had limited time on the their metro to get some photos but did get a few.

This is actually a reworked photo, I just never was happy with the original and this tidier version really works for me compared to the original.

I feel that there is something quite sinister and eerie about this shot, I can’t quite put my finger on what it is but I hope you enjoy the photo.

Golden Lane Estate Carpark, Barbican, London, England – http://bit.ly/1FZgNen

Always wanted to visit this carpark in London after seeing several photos from here and finally found it. Such an atmospheric carpark and very Brutalist in nature.

I took several photos of this carpark and would have preferred if the sunlight was more central but this is where the sun was at that time of day, ah well! I bet here would be great at dusk or dawn with softer light coming through the circular openings.

Hope you all are having a good week, I am slowly working through my latest London photos and will get them uploaded soon.

Southwark Underground Station, London, England – http://ift.tt/V5qrF7

Just back from a weeks holiday down in Devon, nice and relaxed. The weather was great for most part compared to here in North Yorkshire so I made the most of the Sun that we got down in Devon.

I did get a few photos which I will work through in the next few days but todays upload is from the vaults and is of Southwark Underground station. I love this view, one of my favourites within the station but for some reason it is a pig to get all lined up, I am not sure if its the spacing between the tunnel arches or the unusual patterns going on with the roof at the end but in the end I think I got it right.

I am really looking forward to my Underground ‘Ghost’ Station tour a week on Friday at Charing X, can’t wait to get some photos of that awesome station, well the closed Jubilee Part of it.

Oh also just to let everyone know, I have finally joined Instagram, yes I know I am a bit slow but if your on it and wish to follow me click the link below

The View from my Favourite Armchair by Turnipfarmer

Bank-Monument Underground Station, London, England – http://bit.ly/1FZgNen

Busy weekend just gone for me. On Saturday I was busy photographing a wedding with fellow Mark Hepples, got some good photos too and also gave me the chance to try out the awesome Sony A7S which we both hired out! May share a couple of photos with you all sometime.

Anyway, this is an old photo and reworked photo. One of my favourite stations on the London Underground network to photograph although I am sure people who use it on a daily basis for commuting would probably disagree with me as it does get horrendously busy at peak times and often platforms have to be closed off until crowding eases!

Luckily I got a quiet day when I took this photo, something that doesn’t happen very often. I am planning on going down to London this week sometime all being well and looking forward to getting some photos of the new tunnel at Canary Wharf Crossrail station and also at the same time get my new medium format Film camera serviced whilst I down there too.

I hope you are all having a stunning Monday.
