The first indoors photograph I took with my Canon IXUS 120is.

I tried to make sure that the 1st in each category was great. Alas, it takes a while (so I found with compact cameras at least) to get comfortable with the camera.

Still, this came out OK, I managed to get the 1st night shot subject at least to be acceptable (3 attempts until I got it right, rather than one attempt then correcting (cheating) it later :-P) but I think my 1st ever outside shot was too blurry, shame..

Anyway this is the 1st indoors photograph, I was heading into work at about 9.30 at night, hence the emptiness of the train carriage at that point.

Title inspiration came from here:

despite them saying “Motorcycle” not “Northern Line Train”. That said, there is a song about the Northern Line too…

although, the less said about that, the better :-P

Northern Line somewhere, London, England.

Canon IXUS 120is.

I use no post processing of any kind, unless stated.

    Wow! Gret shot. It is unusual for a subway car to be empty and so clean.

  • Well, I get on at the end of the line, so they just come out of the depot, through the car wash… ok train wash… they always have cleaners jumping on at each end to clear the rubbish etc.

    It is odd for it to be this empty at the time of night that I took that photograph though… even when I get on the very 1st Tube of the day i do not get the carriage to myself :-)
