A week before we disappeared off on 'holiday', Mark travelled through London and had to wait on St Pancras station for a couple of hours. He spent the time experimenting with my Dad's old camera, trying to find some interesting compositions. He offered them for the blog and I was very happy to dedicate a post to his shots.
The curved sweep of the station frontage. There is so much detail in the architecture of this building!
Since becoming the International terminus for the Channel Tunnel trains, St Pancras has had something of a restoration and revamp. I love the arched roof. It lets in so much light.
The Olympic Rings are here in anticipation of the big event next summer.
Because it is now such a busy terminus, St Pancras has also sprouted a plethora of shops to entice the traveller to part from his hard earned money.
Statues represent the theme of the traveller. One wonders where this smart gentleman may be going...
...or how long it will be before this loving couple are reunited.
The plaque caught Mark's attention because of the named location. Butterley, in our home county of Derbyshire, is now the home to the Midland Railway Centre.
I hope you enjoyed Mark's collection. I must encourage him to offer more photos for future posts.
