Elegant metal-work - # 107/2011

The huge Paddington Station in west London is being restored and developed and all the glorious beauty of the massive roof is being put on display.

The station is huge and always extremely busy, so "artistic" photos are hard and maybe even totally  impossible. However, I was able to capture the beatuful flower petal pattern that decorates the roof arches.  The restoration work will bring these back to our view in all their glory.     http://www.networkrail.co.uk/aspx/7047.aspx


  1. Isambard Kingdom Brunel - what a name!!

  2. You should post some of those old photos of Brooklands.

    You might find this interesting - the one horse town my Dad grew up in held the first grand prix in Australia and was also the launching pad for the secret Z force commandos into Japan during WWII.
