Charing Cross, 6 July 2005
My condolences to friends in London and all of the United Kingdom after the bomb attacks to the transportation system. We in the United States have suffered similar attacks, and God proved Himself faithful. He will do the same for you too.
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
New International Version (NIV)
The London tube - shoot from the hip (well, almost).
This one won prize in a Lomo contest and was featured on the official Bmw Magazine.
On 6 July 2005, London won its bid to host the 2012 Olympics. The capital celebrated, into the evening.
This is my picture story... it started on 6 July. After work, I took my mobile phone, a k700i, for an evening wander around Trafalgar Square. The following evening I returned, retracing my steps, retaking some of the images.
I didn't know it when I took this photo, but it turned out that the next day, 7 July, was to be a very different one.
I have made a set, starting with this image and with the same title as this shot: 'What a difference a day makes' Probably best to view it as a slideshow, although there are comments throughout, because it's really a narrative.
The pictures, taken on my mobile, are a kind of tale... my story... over those two days in July 2005.
This particular photo, taken in the late evening light of 6/7/2005, was the eve of 7/7... I nearly deleted it... the timing is one of those flukes... but perhaps it's a symbol of hope.

Despite the horrible image of that bus off Russell Square just hours before, with the entire Tube shut down many Londoners had no option but to take to the buses as soon as they started up again.
This was the first one I saw this afternoon. I flinched a little bit.

Helpful Londoners giving directions, There were HUNDREDS of people walking everywhere - since there was no tube or bus. Loads of people out and about with maps and A-Zs. I walked home through Regent's Park - there were loads of people out and about in suits - not what you usually see in parks.
Well done Londoners!

This was taken on the day that London was hit by a series of Bomb blasts. When I went past in the morning they had the guards with their buzbys, when I returned it was guys with machine guns, and the area was cordoned off.

Around 17.00: Buses running as normal but tube stations remain closed.
Droves of commuters squeeze through the narrow path on the Thames on their way to mainline railway stations. Sun replaced grey weather and rain to make the walk less arduous.
Police officers walking through the crime scene area
Leading to Aldgate East Station.
Usually this road is packed with cars as it is on the edge of the congestion charging zone.
Some Londoners took to the pubs after work, many still communicating with friends and relatives using their mobile phones
The underground network is out of action until further notice.
I was on the Piccadilly Line when the bomb went off at 8.58am, albeit at Knightsbridge.
It has been a turmoil few days for London and I am pretty exhausted with the emotional rollercoaster.

Is this version better?
I'm not too much of PS. So if you are really good at it, help yourself !
The spirit is much more important than my "copyright" :)
