After a Flickr Mini Meet with a bunch of keen photographers at the London Transport Museum, the community team were so impressed they wanted to display five photos on their website. But with so many to choose from they needed your help.
Voting has now closed. Catch the winners on the London Transport Museum's site.
A few Sundays back, well Sunday the 18th Feb to be more precise, I was invited along to a mini-flickr meet at the London Transport Museum, organised by Jane Findlay. The museum is in the running for the art fund prize for museums and galleries, so like some super-sized panel of masterchef judges, flickr photographers from the London Tube group, along with transport nutty bloggers, such as Annie Mole, and Route79 were invited along to see whether we'd give them the thumbs up, or more appropriately the green light as it were.
I'd spent the last 5 days bed bound with a nasty cold, so wasn't able to get the most out of this event, let alone take pictures. Suffice to say though, the new arrangement of cut-away vehicles, like the bus below, and complete carriages like the one above, which you were welcome to sit in and read your metro, were great. I was disappointed that the tube driving simulations were "suspended" though. Kind of reminded of the real thing. I would've rather enjoyed the feeling of driving through London Bridge station, failing to stop, watching all the commuters waving rolled up metros at me menacingly. Or making an announcement that any chaps wearing trousers half way up their arse, rectify their fashion crime immediately. Or else, I wouldn't be leaving the station. I should've taken some pictures of the other punters taking a seat, as opposed to the stationary dummies here, and really captured that feeling of going nowhere. Like on the jubilee line (say what you will about the Northern Line, but Jubilee has got to be the worst).
My fellow photographers did a commendable job of capturing the buzz, and attractions to see, over in the London Transport Museum pool. The wordsmiths have also done a better job of setting the scene, than my rambling little effort here. At the end of the afternoon, just like guests at the oscars, we were given goodie bags and so many riches that I've been sworn not to say anymore. What I can say is that I very much look forward to my next G&T with LU roundel shaped ice cubes... Good job LTM!
