Another photo from my latest photo walk around the epic London. This was another passing through a station image that I took. I was on the previous train to this one in this photo and looked out of the door when we were in the platform and looked up seeing these sweeping curves of the roof and the really wide platform so of I hopped. It seems quite common that the Northern Line has quite wide platforms compared to other lines on the network, not sure why though.
I lined up my image before the train pulled in as I knew I wouldn't have much time to take it and get the effect that I wanted and almost got what I wanted. The only thing that I am disappointed with is that I managed to chop a bit off the door as the train pulled out, oh well as all photographers know you can't win them all can you? :-)
On leaving this station it made me think that the London Underground is such a amazing bit of engineering and how many passengers it must carry everyday must be phenomenal and without it London would grind to a half, hence the name of this image :-)
