Get snapping

We're all living in a Tube map

Interesting title for an interesting project. Jon Allen sent me an email this morning on a feature in Metro encouraging us to take pictures around tube stations that we don't normally visit - "Sometimes it takes a foreigner to help the locals see the obvious and everyday with new vision" or blogs for that matter - I can't really imagine any more widespread medium that gets people to navel gaze at their own lives or areas and then get other people interested in that navel gazing by return.

Anyway Astrid Kirchner originally from Austria but now living in London has built a website -
tubemap.org where people can upload photos of an area around a station in an effort to "share the discovery you make. It's good to try and capture an area - it makes you concentrate on it. This is about filling in the gaps between the stations".

There's not many stations on there at the moment but I'm sure with the many digital cameras people got at Xmas it will fill up soon.

By the way, big thanks to my brother for my new digital camera - you should see more piccies on this blog in the future.
