I’ve had an early start this morning for a research trip to Cambridge. I don’t particularly mind getting up early as it happens, not least as it gives me the chance to see London before it gets really busy.
This experience always reminds me how much our impressions of a place are affected by what’s happening in it! I normally find Liverpool Street station a frenetic and bustling hive of activity, but today at 630am it was comparatively deserted and, dare I say, tranquil. Today’s picture is not my finest, snapped on my phone while trying to balance a latte in my other hand…but those of you who have experienced Liverpool Street in the rush hour will probably spot the contrast!
