Swiss Cottage

Swiss Cottage tube station

I love the underground.  If you’re in London and need to go anywhere you just pop down some stairs, jump on a train and then pop back up for air at your destination.  It is so much quicker than trying to get a bus anywhere, and not too expensive.  Today I was at Swiss Cottage on the Jubilee Line (the silver line).  I found myself here after the England vs South Africa ODI Cricket match at Lords.  Normally you would get on a St John’s Wood, but getting thousands of people onto the train at the same time seemed ludicrous, so I walked the extra stop up the line.  These older stations are beautiful.

Remarkably, if you walk one stop from the busy St John’s Wood, you get to the less busy Swiss Cottage and can get on the train with no problems.

Taken in London on a solo photo walk.  Entered into the Dailypost  weekly photo challenge .

Walking around London is a great way to get shake yourself from the creative slump.  This image was an after though, I had just finished at the Leadenhall Market when I saw this colossal glass lobby.  Standing on the other side of the road I was able to get the whole lobby.  The tower it self stands back and rises high above.  Be Careful taking images around th city in London that you stay on the public footpaths, or you may be trespassing.
