No Hurry

For those who have had enough of U-Bahn images this is the last for a while. This is Westfriedhof once more shot from platform level as a train arrives.

Very cool lights. Public transport and great design should go together like this. In the UK, well...

You and your camera have made some remarkable images at this station. I've enjoyed studying every one of them and can't wait to see where you next take us!

Thanks. I liked this image a lot though it should have been better.

I had the camera propped on its side on the strips you can see in the foregound and was more or less guessing on the rest of the composition. Just as I was about to take the picture the driver of the oncoming train sounded his horn to warn me he was coming - which was just as well since I hadn't actually noticed. I think it did jumpor at least twitch a bit but the image still turned out reasonably well.

Eamon having just come back from London were I was taking a weekend break I couldn't help comparing the Underground with the Munich system. The newer tube stations can be quite good but aesthetics does seem to have been a low priority on the UK transport system.

I believe the new St Pancreas international is excellent, though I haven;t seen it yet, and some of the projected new stations for the Crossrail link also look good.
