beakerkin said...

It looks like Union Station in LA with a concourse.

I can not see a news stand in the picture.

SandyCarlson said...

You have captured the intensity of the station. Everyone's going somewhere with no time to waste! I feel pulled forward into the picture.

Juliana RW said...

Lilli & Nevada said...

WOw so big and great B&W shot

Mrs Wibbs said...

Wow that is an impressive picture!! there is so much going on there... and for some reason the B&W makes it feel more real, more 'raw' - don't know if that makes sense? I like it though!!

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Very atmospheric, that.

Chris said...

ahhh, reminds me of the Frankfurt station ! Have a good WW.

Midas said...

This is wonderful picture. Just like in the movies.

Is this the English version of Grand Central Station?

KathyUSA said...

Great clear crisp b/w. You must have used a tri-pod to get this great effect!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone. Glad you liked this week's entry!

Jim said...

Hey Jams, it sure doesn't look very crowded. I wonder how much worse it gets during rush hours?

Congratulations on the 200,000th reader! I'm only sitting at 31,000+ although I did have my 1000th post a few days ago. This is on my main blog.

Interesting photo, it really shows movement, and the action of being inside a busy building. Thank you for visiting!

Sarge Charlie said...

Hi Jams, my Wednesday Version of WW will be up later, just a little peek under your Kilt. I used your photos today and have had some good responses to them. Thank you so much from across the pond. Congrats on 200K, wow, you are a superstar.

Chuck said...

Sarge Charlie said...

I live in West Palm Beach, maybe I was #200,000.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone


Haha Jimmy, sometimes the mind boggles at the searches that bring people to our blogs!

It could have been you Sarge. I really liked the way you used the Battle of Britain memorial photos. It was a beautiful post

the teach said...

jams, I love b&w shots! What time of day? Not rush hour I presume... :D

jams o donnell said...

It was just after 10am Mary. Rush hour was well and truly over. I must do another set earlier or later in the day

Chris said...

Many's the time I've ran across there trying to get the last non-stop to Romford....

Nap Warden said...

Great shot...this is different for you:)

ellen b said...

Chris said...

Wow, impressive!

val said...

Happy WW

Shrijnana said...

I don't think I've ever seen Liverpool Street station so uncrowded. I like the black and white effect.

Excellent capture, and wonderfully captured at that. The b&w adds to the storytelling and "live action."

Love it!

Mama Grizzly said...

wow! Great picture!

Kelly @ Pass the Torch said...

Roger said...

Awesomeness shot Jams!

ZJ said...

Great photo! One can actually feel the hustle and bustle at the station, plus, I love the black and white feel to it.

Bernie said...

What a crazy (busy) photo, but I am sure that it has seen busier times...

Cool shot! Ours is up as well at burntofferings and more at bernies fotoblog.

Have a great WW!!

Mar said...

Great shot! Love the added movement through the blurry spots. I recently took one in our main train station...it could be my next ww :)
Happy Wednesday!

The Right Blue said...

How slow was your shutter speed in order to get the blur? It's quite an arty shot.

Carin said...

It was busy at Liverpool Street Station when you took that photo. I like the way you took the shot, very creative! The black/white makes it even more impressive.

Malena said...

I love busy trainstation pics! Make me think of travelling and packpacking! :) Great shot!

WillThink4Wine said...

You've captured the motion! Given the right perspective, we all look like a bunch of worker ants, don't we? Haha!

Eric and Flynn said...

Great photo. The B&W gives it much more feeling than colour could.

Strider said...

A very active photo! Happy WW!

The Lone Beader said...

I got lost in Liverpool Street Station last week! LOL.

Blessed Chic said...

Great shot you got there! Thanks for stopping by.

Raven said...

You've really captured the motion and energy of such places. Cool photo.

CherryPie said...

I love the way you captured the action and movement.

Carver said...

Great shot Jams. They almost look like they are choreographed.

vixen said...

It has such wonderful texture in black and white. Great shot.

Happy WW

Jenty said...

The B&W just makes the shot!

jams o donnell said...

THanks everyine, Glad you liked this shot.

Haha Chris.. happy memories and a cab to Hornchurch too?

Right blue, The shot was taken at a 2 second exposure. Luckily I didnt need a tripod as I could place it safely on top of a huge advertising scren hanging from a balcony

Julia Smith said...

I like the slightly blurred people, hinting at the hub-bub.

eastcoastlife said...

The station is huge! I might visit this place in the future because my hubby is a Liverpool fan and he is planning to visit Liverpool. :)

jams o donnell said...

THanks Julia, thannks ECL. Liverpool St is in London and strangley the trains from the station go nowhere near Liverpool!

poor man's nicole richie said...

from the third world's point of view, it appears like an international airport to me.
I'd love to see train stations like that.
