Hey, that's great!

Have those windows always been there? It's been a while since I frequented the tube.

I was in London year before last but I only took the underground from Canary Wharf to Waterloo for the Eye and to Bond Street for a corned beef sandwich and to buy a couple of polo shirts before heading off to southern Spain in early June.

The Hilton at Canary Wharf was a good choice. Huge room, laundry service over the weekend, semi-decent (but over priced) restaurant, 24-hour room service, cheap room price, short walk to the tube.

We had been traveling for weeks, Larisa had to go back to USA for school and work, so I mainly stayed in my room over the weekend. Not a bad idea, since the staff were astonishingly rude, except for the porters and one Italian clerk on the desk. Seemed to be mainly Asian tour groups there.

I don't remember a single English person on the staff. An American woman who appeared to be the general manager sat at the next table and talked business.

Wonderful photo--not just the windows--the people and the electric light fixture are just right. Love it.

Very cool picture Simon.
Nice to look at. It looks like you put the people there as models for your picture.
This way it becomes a tad surrealistic what gives an exta dimention in this picture.
Ofcource the sealing windows and the light is stunning!

P.S. Nice to mention handheld, the shutter speed the f/ and ISO.

Good catch on low light!

I've just got myself a fuji X100s - probably loving it more than my guitar at the mo.
