I decided to do a little project where I took pictures of my journey to work each day. I done all of these using my mobile phone camera, Nokia N86 if you are interested.

Not surprised you hate commuting when you spend 4 hours of your life five days a week doing it. I did the commute into Central London for over 15 years before I had enough of it.

At least you have found a way to make it a bit less dull and incorporate your photographic interest into the commute.

Good concept Al, I like it. Not to sure about the weather though, it's been a long time since I lived in scouse land up north. Took a few beach and surfer shots this week, thought I'd post some to warm you up and remind you summer is around the corner except I don't think they are good enough to post, they show the sun but not the 30 degree + days we're getting now. :D

Cheers

Hi Al,
Nice idea you had there. I just finished going through the pictures. I cannot believe how quiet the train looked at 7.15. I would love to take pics of commuters when i have been on the train, but worry in case they get angry or mad if you try to take a picture, at least a mobile is less obvious. Personally feel you should have made use of the bikes (only joking) :lol: or did you worry there would be no bike parking spaces left at the end of the journey. :lol:
Your building looks interesting with the lifts of the outside. Must look out for it when if i go back to take some more shots of the wonderful Gherkin building.
Once again Al nice concept.
Sue

Thanks guys, yeah it was fun to do. I have to say that train is normally packed out with people standing everywhere and the underground Waterloo and City line when I do use it is really busy.

It is an amazing looking building and a building and structures photographers dream!

These are not my photos as I never really got round to taking pics of the building, but they are available on Flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/purplecloud/1393589028/in/set-72057594137548033/lightbox/
