Edinburgh to London by train

March 26th, 2008

I’m brewing up a project by the same name, and hope to be heading out to have it completed by the summer. It’s going to involve travelling down from Edinburgh to London following the East Coast train line that I have used so many times over the past 5 years, and photographing the route. Very often, on these train journeys, I have found myself looking out of the train window at some stunning landscape or seascape and wishing that I could jump off the train right there and take some photos. Unfortunately that is not the way with trains, so I’ve always ended up getting out my camera phone and shooting through the window:

On my most recent journey to London by train I carried a GPS with me. I marked points on it during the journey that have always interested me over the years, and so I will start with these. I’ll probably have to do the GPS thing a few times though, as it can get pretty hard concentrating on a hanging view for 4 and a half hours. I got bored after Newcastle, and read a book/snoozed for the rest of the way. I’ll get there though!

    I love that you marked places on your GPS. You put my Virgoness to shame. Hehehehe. Super cool idea tho-I know what you mean about seeing cool things along familiar routes and wishing you could capture them. Love the Princes St. Gardens photies too – so perdy! Hope you are well, lass!
