Exploring the Post Office Railway
Wow. And I thought my visit to Aldwych abandoned station was impressive… these guys from Silent UK (an urban exploration blog) managed to access and explore the entirety of the ‘Mail Rail’ – an underground railway built beneath London to transport post from East to West, and abandoned since 2003.
Amazing pictures and words here.
E190 + PW1900G / Super Jumbo A380 / Adam Senatori, 2013
Seriously cool aircraft photography by Adam Senatori. See his tumblr here.
Adrift / Simon Christen, 2013
Adrift is a stunning time-lapse film of the San Francisco bay area, as mist & fog rolls in from the Marin Headlands. Shot by Simon Christen, an ex-Pixar animator turned photographer. Nice original score by The Album Leaf too.
Brighton / Tim George, 2013
New photography up on my Flickr page – taken during a traditional English bank holiday seaside trip. I always find places like Brighton a really interesting challenge to photograph. It’s so difficult to bring a new dimension to the place – the same clichéd shots have been done over and over again.
I’m not saying I found anything radically different this time around, but the light was gorgeous and I’m pretty pleased with a few of my shots. Certainly captures the feel of the place anyway.

Oh, also, I’m loving the new Flickr since it was re-designed. A massive improvement from the old style, it feels really fresh and clean now, as well as being a whole lot simpler.
Acton Depot / 2013
Some new shots are now up on my Flickr – taken during a tour of the London Transport Museum Depot in Acton, West London.
If you’re in any way interested in graphic design, typography, and/or trains, I would suggest you get down there as soon as you can. It’s an absolute treasure trove of beautiful items from the network’s rich 150-year history.
Unfortunately, being a depot, there’s very little natural light, so please excuse the grainy, artificial tone of the shots. I’m sure you’ll agree, the content more than makes up for it.
London Loop / Tudor Prisăcariu, 2011
Ex-Sennep designer Tudor Prisăcariu has launched another of his epic photography projects – from 2011 when he walked the London Loop. This series shows a really interesting insight to London and its suburbs; there are scenes of great natural beauty juxtaposed with some really grim areas of urban decay. It all adds up to a fascinating and unusual portrayal of the city.
Simple Present / Bert Danckaert, 2011
Great images from global cities by Belgian photographer Bert Danckaert. Such a great sense of colour & composition.
ISS star trails / Expedition 31 Flight Engineer Don Pettit, 2012
Beautiful long-exposure shots taken from the ISS by Don Pettit.
Also make sure you check out the rest of the stuff uploaded to Flickr by NASA_JSC_Photo, there are some amazing shots of all things space-related on there, and most are free to download at massive resolution.
