Anyone who lives in a metropolis and uses the public transport system will be familiar with this image. One of the reasons I find this photograph so great is because it takes the ordinary and makes it special. This photograph by Doug (a.k.a. Douguerreotype) has captured the frenetic lifestyle of every one of us who lives or work in a big city.
I left the London rat race 14 years ago and whenever I return I find myself falling back into my old habits, including rushing through the Tube even though I have absolutely no need to do so any more. This photo reminds me of me!
Doug produces some great urban / street photography. Please use the link above to see this image on Flickr and take your time to browse through the rest of his work. I'm sure you'll like what you see.
