Paddington


I had some time while at this rather attractive station so I decided to take a few shots.  I can never work it out: Is it that designs were better and bolder in days gone by? Or is it that the effect of time helps add a soul?  The supporting structure for the sheds at Paddington Station are both simple and elaborate.  Try achieving this mix - in today's straight line madness.


In order to have a uniform colour and feel on this post, I would have usually gone for Black & White.  The main reason is the varied colours of people's clothes in the last two photographs.  However I was inspired to use Sepia by the original colour of the structure.  Have a look at the header photograph in its original format here.

Wow ! brilliant decision to go with Sepia. Gives it much more depth and feeling than if it were in B&W.

On my vacation I was stopped by the cops for taking pics at the station :(
