signs

21 October 2002

sign from the national railway museum i have stacks of photos sitting on my hard drive waiting to get sorted out and uploaded. i think i’ve been waiting to clear the backlog to upload any new photos which is clearly a ludicrous strategy that’ll never get me anywhere. so i’ll work in backwards chronological order and i might just get somewhere.

we went to the national railway museum at york yesterday and i gave up on the idea of taking pictures of whole trains after a couple of pathetic attempts at photography. i concentrated on collecting as many pretty logos and odd signs as i could. here’s the results.

the lighting at the museum is abysmal which is why many of my photos have flash glare on them. in some places the lighting is justified, for example, to preserve the fabrics in queen victoria’s royal train carriages, but mostly it seemed that they couldn’t be bothered to switch the lights on.
