Jon Crispin's Notebook

Earl’s Court Tube Station

Posted in Advertising, Architecture, Buildings, Cities, People, Travel by joncrispin on 19/12/2011

I have taken this very same photograph multiple times.  I was looking through my contact sheets for an earlier version and realized just how much has changed over the years in terms of photography.  Shoot film>Develop>Dry>Cut>Put in sleeves>Contact sheets>Edit>Enlarge>Make some postcards>Mail to 3 friends.  Digital is so much easier for me now. Shoot>Download>Edit>Upload>Write post>Get great response from loads of people I have never met.  I understand why some still prefer film, but for me this is so much better.

    Actually one of my least favourite stations! But I do always like most of the ads up there.

    I remember one of your much early almost identically framed images of this as a black and white postcard.
    time and space…

    Would it be too great a request to see earlier versions of this view? I am one of the scads of people you have never met… but who greatly enjoys your posts.

      Nigel, I spent about 10 minutes looking for a black and white shot but ran out of time. I’ll work on it. I am really beginning to want to post images from my black and white film days. Thanks so much for your interest and encouragement. Jon

    Happy there are purists who still use film…however digital has opened up a whole new world for me in the 6 or 7 years that I’ve had a “point and shoot.” I think of the money I’ve saved by not having to have film developed!
    Plus I can take a yucky photo and don’t have to pay to have it developed…I can just delete…fantastic! I like your photo!
