Quiet tube escalator!
Quiet tube escalator!
Is that OLD STREET? when I worked it (many years ago) there was an escalator non standard. The sort that you find in depatment stores. They had to put it in because Otis couldnt supply in time.
BTW nice picture , exposure is not easy in that light.

It's not Old Street but the funny thing is I can't figure out where it is? I know I was going to Faringdon but that station is above ground and I go there from Liverpool Street on the circle line so I wouldn't have gone down any escalators from there? I'll leave my brain to work on it on it's own and let you know later if it remembers.
Some summer images. Hyde Park and Kennsington gardens (except the last one, which is St. James Park). All GRD II.

Thanks and regards,
Thanks. I've been enjoying these. Have some new ideas about pp, and they seem to work. More will follow soon.
London rooftops. GRD II.
Beautiful GRD I colors
and a GRDII B&W
Some exceptional clouds the other day.
Not sure if I posted this one somewhere already.
Near Brick Lane:
These bloody flickr links keep disappearing after every modification...
Some more London specific photos. Angel Alley
and the Kangaroo
Now thinking that the first may work better in color. Anyway..
Here are some of mine.
View from the 41st floor towards the O2 and East London:
The Thames Barrier:
Near Camden Lock:
Very nice. Never been to the barrier, looks cool.
Great shots sizifo and vladimirV, I really like the one of the O2
Some from today, I nearly melted, 33 degrees! Th underground was way hotter then that even.
Air conditioning was lovely!
Thunderstorms today in London.

I really like those sizifo. Looking back over some of my B&W images I have to say I agree with you about the GRDI producing better tonality than the GRDII
My GRDII was in for repair last year and so I was forced to revert to the GRDI and it rendered some lovely files. I now find myself using the sepia tone option on the GRDII and am wondering if that is a reaction to the B&W jpgs not being so pleasing?
Think I'm going to start a new thread for GRDI and GRDII B&W images.

Absolutely. While the II has more pixels, it also has more crapixels than the I . As a result, the images have more resolution, but also have more of the cardboard cutout feel of small sensor. This can be good or bad, depending on the image, but the tonality of GRDI is definitely superior.
I think this is a general trend, and the reason why the tonality of very old small sensor cameras often beats the new ones (e.g. as was arguably obvious in the recent olympus thread here).
The problem I have is that the GRDII is just about the perfect camera as far as UI, whereas GRDI can be annoying in some respects.
I hope this one isn't too provocative. Soho on a saturday night.
I also attach a color version. Not sure which one works better.
Here's a more optimistic one.
Here is an unusual subject for you all to ponder.
Miniature Martian Space Domes.
They look like they could be don't they.
Here is another one which should give the game away.
