Tube update: Paddington and St. John’s Wood

January 20, 2012

I went back to Bristol last weekend, and I evidently forgot to upload my photo of Paddington tube station! I also took a picture of Bayswater, but with my thumb in front of it, it got deleted and I will have to take another one sometime.

I never realised that the building for Paddington tube station was so grand, having been mainly used to the railway station / hangar.

And then today, I went to the American School in London and I had to reveal this London Underground Photo project that I am doing to my colleagues – I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get a picture of St. John’s Wood (where I have never been up until today) and I couldn’t just take a picture of it without looking like a total weirdo. So I explained the photo project, and I got my picture!

Another two off the list! Where will I go next?…

Tube update: Shepherd’s Bush

December 4, 2011

I actually took a picture of Shepherd’s Bush station a few weeks ago, but it was dark and so my iPhone’s camera got confused and blurred the whole thing up, making it unpostable. But Toby and I went to Westfield again today and this time, it was daylight! So I got a nice picture of the station:

… as well as some Christmas presents (this weekend I have finally kicked off buying Christmas presents, and am proud to say that I am nearly halfway done!) and also a nice little Christmas tree and some decorations for my flat! I haven’t quite finished, and it wasn’t as traditional-looking as I intended, but I am still pleased with the results:

Thank you Paperchase and Debenhams for supplying the goods! I love this time of year and it’s so lovely to have my very own first set of mini Christmas decorations!

Tube update: Notting Hill Gate and Finchley Road

November 7, 2011

Hello people! So today I have another two pictures to add to the collection: Notting Hill Gate, which is the closest tube station to my office, and Finchley Road, which is the closest tube station to one of the other school campuses.

The Notting Hill Gate station is all underground, so there’s not much to look at…

… and due to the fact that by 5pm, it’s dark, this is not the best picture of Finchley Road tube station either. But I did well to get it, considering that I had to practically stand in the middle of the road to get a decent shot of it!

Tube update: Earls Court

November 6, 2011

Lo and behold, as predicted, my next entry into my London Underground photo blog project is Earls Court.

This was pretty easy, as I can see this tube station from my window. I have taken a picture of the Warwick Road entrance as it is the entrance I am most familiar with. And then, at the same time I was able to take a bonus picture of…

… the Earls Court Exhibition Centre across the road, which is the main attraction of Earls Court and what most non-Londoners think of when they hear the name “Earls Court”. This was taken on the return from Tesco this morning, when Toby and I were both sneezing into our tissues and feeling very sorry for our cold-afflicted selves. Being able to watch the fireworks going off from outside my window last night was a lovely bonus to living in this area.

I am going to see Nana in Knightsbridge this afternoon so if I go past any more tube stations, I will diligently try and add them to the collection! Watch this space.
