Steam on The Underground

As part of the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the London Underground, Transport for London ran an authentic steam train down the tube line, as it used to be done in the 1800s!  I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of it both weekends it ran.

Chateau de Saint-Ilpize

We’ve been lucky to spend our last two Christmas holidays with family in south-central France.  Just up the road from where they live is a 1,000 year old castle, which of course became the subject of dozens and dozens of photos.

Aldwych Underground Station

Once a year, the London Transport Museum (with Transport for London) opens up the long-abandoned Aldwych tube station on The Strand to the public.  We were fortunate enough to snag tickets for this extremely unique event.  Despite hearing many stories last year about DSLR cameras not being allowed on the tour, I decided I’d chance it anyways.  Lucky for me, there were not problems whatsoever, and I managed to snag some views of the incredible space.

Worldwide Photo Walk 2012

After having so much fun last year with Justin van Leeuwen in Ottawa, we decided again to take part in this year’s Worldwide Photo Walk.  Our walk leader this year was the highly-talented Tom Bourdon.  Check his stuff out – he’s taken amazing photos all around the world.

The walk in London took us through Battersea Park, and into parts of Chelsea.  The weather held out for most of the walk, though the warm pub at the end of the walk was a welcome site!

Here’s a selection of the photos I took on the walk.  Click the photo to see more:

Day Trip to Oxford

With a friend in town for a visit, we decided to take a day trip up to Oxford to see the sights…  We explored a couple of the old colleges, and also had a punt around the canal.

London 2012

This weekend, we managed to (finally) get involved in the Olympics.  Granted, it was a free event, in a park, but it was great to catch some of the action.  We got to see the Women’s Triathlon, consisting of a 1500m swim, a 43km bike ride, and a 10km run.  We were well-positioned for the biking portion, but didn’t see the swimming, and only caught glimpses of the running.
