A Post About Post

Here in the UK, our postal system livery is red – Pillar Box Red, to be exact! You post your letter in a post box, often found outside a post office, then a postman (male or female, because let’s face it postperson just sounds silly) in a van comes round at set times to empty the box and collect the post to be taken to the sorting office. After sorting all the post into individual delivery rounds, more postmen walk their rounds street by street, positioning their large lockable trolley at the end of each somewhere to keep the post secure, and delivering your post (via a heavy shoulder bag) directly through your door 🙂

Urban Transport

Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge this week has the theme of ‘urban’ – and for me, London’s Underground trains are as urban as you get. Luckily for me I found myself travelling out of town aganst the rush-hour traffic last Thursday morning, flowing outwards towards freedom instead of funneling myself with fathomless futility into the crushing confines of the train carriage. Anyway, to my surprise and delight I managed to capture some reasonably clear-of-commuters-playing-sardines shots on my smartphone, from both outside and inside of a tube train 🙂
