I couldn't resist this shot taken while waiting in St Pancras Station and feel it may fit Silly Tuesday. Happy ST everyone

Canon EOS 500D 1/160 second F/4.0 ISO 1600 75 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Terrific! All on his own ... modern living ... Nobody watches, nobody speaks, nobody embraces sculpture as yesterday ... that penalty time! A subjective opinion of course!

So amazing, and a little appalling, but mostly funny. I think of startrek where they all take those gismos on shore trips. It was prophetic. This is a great capture Doug!
