London City Airport DLR Station, London, England

This is a first visit for me to this station. Not the biggest station in the world but very symmetrical and its what I like :-). Had to wait a little while to get this shot as there were quite a few people slighting from the trains as they come into the station to go to the airport, I was quite surprised considering the size of City Airport.

I always really enjoy taking images of something new and fresh for myself so was well chuffed when I come across this station. I slightly desaturated the whole image in post production and added a little bit of green toning and then boosted the blues and yellows for the blue arches and yellow handrails. I think this would also look quite good in B&W conversion.

The only thing that has really annoyed me is in the white part of the glass canopy there seems to be quite a bit of noise. After closer inspection in LR4, its not on the original image that I have uploaded and seems to have appeared on Flickr so I put it down to the Flickr compression algorithms.

When I was at this station and waiting to go back into London I had a random thought on what percentage of the stations on the underground network I have visited. I feel although that I have taken many photos at them I bet the percentage is still quite small. I should do a project and pick one line and take an image at each station along the length of that line, that would be quite interesting.

Anyway, that was my random Monday thought. :-)
