My Chariot Awaits...



I have mentioned before that I have this thing with lines in pictures...my eyes are drawn to them. I went to lunch today with a friend and got this shot as I looked over the bridge just down from our home of the train leaving the station on its way into central London. It doesn't seem like it in this photo but the train is going away from the camera.

I have never lived in a large, urban city. In the States, most families have 2 cars...here we are a one car family. London has eight million people and the tube (train) is by far the easiest, cheapest and fastest way to travel. It's a fun way to get around and I have really gotten the hang of it. Not having to worry about driving, parking or gas (especially at $8 a gallon) has been a huge selling point for me in learning how to decipher tube lines, schedules and maps. The kids are picking it all up pretty quickly too which is neat to watch.

I wish we had this available to us here in NC, Anna. I got used to the trains in Italy and France this fall and saw how convenient they are. The big muckety-mucks around here have been talking about rail travel for this area ever since I moved here, but so far it is only a dream.

I like lines running through photos too. I also like trains in general, so this pic is especially enticing.

Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to
get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very
good gains. If you know of any please share. Kudos!
