New Oxford Street to Oxford Circus

Along Oxford Street

Travelling west. A little later -
Dance buskers near Oxford Circus. Traffic was slow, their music was loud and their performance exuberant. The crowd were loving it, especially the mock-ballet bit.

Finsbury Park to Holborn

Kensal Rise to Crouch Hill

Recycled poster paper (printed on back).

Tracing paper.

Thin (old) typing paper.

Faber-Castell PITT artist pen, medium. Between trains, waiting in the sunshine.

Overground - new train

Three continuous carriages on the Richmond-Stratford line, with a conductor who signals "ready to depart" with the morse code for the number seven: two long, three short. Or is it - two short and then three short (ie, I and S)? You hear it so often you can't remember because you're actually ignoring it.

Finsbury Park - Museum of London - Notting Hill Gate

Recycled poster paper (printed on the back).

Thin (old) typing paper.

Staedtler Lumocolor permanent marker - it seeps through the thin paper, and must be held lightly, upright, to get a fine line.

Crouch Hill Station

Two or three freight trains between each passenger train, it seems. Could be just the time of day.

Queens Park to Euston

Three stages, between stations - Queen's Park to Kilburn Road; Kilburn Road to South Hampstead; South Hampstead to Euston.

Tracing paper with graphite rubbings of stitched marks in fabric. The graphite is inside the folds, preventing smearing.

South Kensington to Finsbury Park

Finsbury Park to Princes Gate

To Hyde Park corner by tube, then take a 9, 10 or 52 bus. Along came a Routemaster!

The paper is from a pad of recycled posters.
