We know very little about King’s Cross Station. Our rail journeys to Cumbria always begin at Euston Station, a fifteen minute walk away.

A journey via Leeds gave us the chance to pass through this venerable part of Britain’s infrastructure, and I immediately noticed the roof. My first thought was that it had been designed by the same architects as the roof of the British Museum – Foster and partners.

But there seems to be no connection. In fact, upon further reflection, one is a lattice support structure and the other a roof… One is made of thick steel tubes and the other…. Is not.

Photography is like that. You focus on one aspect and forget the ‘big picture, so to speak…

On to the next!
