London, United Kingdom, Summer 2006

This was taken on a summer evening a few weeks ago at Clapham Junction station, one of the busiest places in London. And though was very hot for London, it’s the last place you expect to find someone sunbathing. So it was a rather surreal sight. I waited for a train to pass and grabbed a picture with my compact Nikon. (I have reversed the image so you can read the station name reflected in the train window).
