Platform 1, guards cabin



The new Blackfriars train station is a sleek structure spanning the river Thames.

It’s just been finished so it still has that new-platform smell. And already there are some strange boxes appearing on the platforms.

As an aside, check out the beautiful view of St Paul’s and the Shard.

National Day

Flags and badminton

A bit of a belated post considering Chinese national day is on 1 October, but really wanted to put in these photos from the holiday in Shanghai. The national day is accompanied by a week-long national holiday … that’s why everything feels so relaxed in these photos.
