passport photo

another passport photo. this time found by myself at Edgware Road tube station.
i wasn’t going to get off at this station (as paddington station, where i was heading, was the next stop), but found myself unmistakenly drawn to get up and walk the 10 minutes to paddington.
as i walked up the stairs which lead to the exit i found this photo for my collection
being on top of the world from such spiritual guidance i walked boldly off to paddington station. on the way a police man stopped me and said “and why do you think you can walk down here sir ?”.
It turned out there was a ‘suspect package’ in the street and they had closed the road (though tube trains were probably running just under the road !).
If i’d be quick of thought i would have answered “because i am impervious to explosives”, but you never think of these things at the time. in the end my walk took me 20 minutes instead because of the diversion, but it was worth it to find the photo.
this is my first cut-out photo.

by the way, i’m planning on a proper makeover to the davescollection website which is why i haven’t updated it for a while. this will be my christmas project, and my main present to my friends and family (apologies to those expecting CDs etc) …
