    I went into London the day before the trrorist attack on London and took a few pics.. thing was - since it was my day off on 07/07 I was going to go in that morning... really lucky

    Westminster Abbey the night before the attack...

    This is what one of the tube platforms at Liverpool Street - with their entourage - looked like before being redecorated...

    With so many people protesting you wonder why these attacks happen!

    Hope you find these pictures as ironic as I do. Peace!

    Westminster looks good there. But I much prefer the tube shot. The way everyone is still but the train is moving. The curved shape of it really adds to it. Seems to give a bigger emphasis to the movement. Perhaps because it helps it look smooth?
    Nice stuff.

    I'm glad you keep bumping up these threads snownow! I had missed these.
    Wonderful photos. I agree with Ferny about the subway photo. I love it. All of them are really great though. I'm glad you were not hurt. The subway photo, besides being great, makes me sad too. Those poor folks.......just going to work.
