    Hello, I wanted to say that a project I been sharing here and developing over the last few years has now finally become a book.

    The Tube Mapper Project: Capturing Moments On The Underground showcases some of my favourite encounters as I slowly attempt to capture moments at every London Underground, Overground and DLR station. Thank you for the feedback over the years and helping me fine tune the project. Here's a few shots

    thanks Nige, its very cheap on amazon right now. The publisher has an rrp of £20.00 but amazon can squeeze their margins. I find the book world really fascinating and complicated.

    +1 from me. Love the cat waiting for the train... but isn't it, and the nearby human, looking the wrong way ??

    We sometimes hear about people getting challenged and or told not to take photos in places such as transport networks. Out of interest, did you have any issue at all with your project and did you need permission to take the photos and then publish?

    They don't like it in Newcastle-upon-Tyne anyway. I took a couple of photos on a deserted platform (apart from us) and this staff gorgon strode up to me and told me to stop. Not allowed!

    You know, for £14 it is worth a look isn’t it? I have just ordered a copy too.

    Bad news is that Amazon report it is going to be the week after next when it is delivered (along with 2 other books)

    Good news is that it's over 200 pages long :) Should be plenty of great shots inside

    Mine has been dispatched by Amazon today so should have it by tomorrow. I’ll let you know if it’s worth it.;)

    Photography is not allowed on the Tyne & Wear Metro, I seem to remember them once holding a photo competition though. Not that the ban stops people, I think it probably exists due to concerns about flash.

    Just ordered it. Will be here by Sunday. Nice to be able to put a face to Luke's name and an interesting wee story about wining the camera too.
