Photography on Public Transport
Using public transport in London is a matter of course for me. If I won the lottery tomorrow (I haven’t got a ticket so I won’t hold my breath) I would still much rather travel by train than by cab both for the opportunity to people-watch, and to visit some of the stations which are a work of art in themselves.
London is Red
I didn’t realise how prevalent red was in London until I lived in Manhattan for a while, where the visuals seem to hang on the contrast between dark grey and the bright yellow of the ubiquitous cabs. The contrast is particularly good after rain; there’s something very beautiful about it all. But for London, red is the main event.
This prevalence is due to the public transport system – the red buses, the red circular element of the tube station signs and the Santander Cycles. But red is also the colour for post boxes and telephone boxes, and is also an important colour in many of the uniforms you’ll see like Horse Guards, The Queens Guard, and the Yeoman Warders at the Tower of London.
