Default Glimpses of London

The London Underground is ubiquitous, multi-ethnic and so British!

Have you considered cropping off the left side to leave a clean and colorful geometric composition involving rectilinear and curvilinear lines?;

Peter,

Unfortunately the gallery has those banners which hide the beautiful curvilinear stonework. I will look at your suggestion. I had decided it was better to not try to obfuscate how they use the small wall space they have. I think I might write to them!









What's interesting is that the heraldry carved into the stone is protected from hazards by steel wire! That is amazing! Don't they trust anyone there?

We travelled around to family spaces, but tried to look on from a new viewpoint.

I would probably crop out the fragment of banner on the left side, for the same reason I would crop out a little sliver of door frame (although admittedly this is more than a sliver).

Best regards,

Doug

So sorry. I was referring to IMG_4191_IMG_4192-2 images.jpg.

Makes sense! I love the pageantry in Royally blessed institutions: very archaic and impressive and the British take all that seriously!
