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.
