Southwark Underground Station, London, England

This image has been driving me mad this morning :-). It was one of those photos that I was just not happy with once uploaded to Flickr, this is the third time I have uploaded it but I am very happy now, I suppose every photographer gets those images from time to time however I am sure that some of the Flickr algorithms when it uploads makes the image look slightly different to what it looks like in Photoshop.

Anyway this is another image from Southwark Underground station, this time taken from the circulating hall at the top of the escalator from where I took the other image at Southwark. I always knew that I wanted to do it in high key but as I mentioned previous it proved little more difficult than anticipated to get the look that I wanted.

The architecture here reminds me of Greek architecture which I am sure it is based on with the walls built out of what appears to be Portland Stone. The stone arches are just awesome, I don't believe that there is another station in this style on the network.
