Warren Street Station

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?
Six years ago it was London during a day out riding the rails with Dad. From memory we were only in London for an hour and a half between trains but I had time for a brief wander out of Euston station and down to West End Cameras then located on Tottenham Court Road.
BT Tower reflection

I couldn’t resist photographing the BT Tower, reflected in the University College Hospitals Education Centre, especially when a London bus sneaked into shot!
Christmas Tree, London St Pancras International, 2015
Fujifilm X-E1, Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8, 1/3s, f8, ISO 800
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Cool Yule or whatever celebration floats your boat at this time of year…
A Christmas tree image from four years ago, captured at London St Pancras International railway station… If memory serves I steadied the camera by pressing it tightly up against one of the pillars that supports the upper level of the station.
2000 soft toys were provided by The Disney Store and when the ‘tree’ was taken down they were donated to KIDS, a charity which cares for disabled children, young people and their families.
* ‘and to all, a good night…’
St Pancras Basin, February 2019
Nikon FE2, Nikkor 35mm f/2 AI-S – 1/125s, f8, – Kodak Portra 800 rated at ISO 400
A couple of hours between trains in London recently gave me the opportunity to explore St Pancras Basin on the Regent’s Canal. It’s an interesting location, one worth further visits (in better weather!)
The dull weather actually suited my purposes with this image though… the drab sky and grey catenary powering the Channel Tunnel Rail Link contrast rather nicely with the colourful boats and brickwork surrounding the basin.
Scan by AgLab with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.
Kings Cross St Pancras, May 2018

Surely there’s nowhere better to practise street photography than in a busy city, hardly anyone gives a photographer a second glance…
