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.

Psalm 91:3-5

 

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.

This was taken at about 3pm, as the standard was adjusting it's print run to cope with the events of the day.

 

Several bombs went off in London on 7th July 2005. One on a bus, ripping it to shreds, others on the underground.

This is not me, nor taken by me - this picture was taken by Adam Stacey and was originally uploaded here, with a CC licence.

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.

this was on edgeware road around 6pm

Thanks to Glauka and _Granados_. They and their works were who moved me to made anything, to express my emotions.

 

And thaks to all people.

Remenber, we're not alone...

...in pain, in fight, in peace, in our lives...

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!

Making sure no bombs are lying around...

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.

It was a lot to take in.

 

Later on, I saw a girl reading another edition of the paper, with the word "CARNAGE" across the top. I thought that was a bit unwise, as we were on the bus at the time.

Around 17.00: Buses running as normal but tube stations remain closed.

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
