Underground art

A while back I was playing with the idea of taking an iconic image and amending it slightly to produced new art forms. I expect the copyright police to come-a-calling as I chose the London Underground.

Many of you will know the Underground map, but without the place names and the Thames, can you spot the locations?

    Surprisingly difficult!! Is the bottom pic Green Park? And the top Bank?? What a surprise how such a familiar object like a tube map can be so foreign!!

    Yes, I can recognise them…😦 Maybe I spent too much time in it… 0-)
    According to QI:
    “the London Underground has made more money from its famous map than it has from running trains”. Did you know that?

    Very clever! I hardly recognise something I’m quite familiar with!

    Nik – that’s amazing, but when you think about it, it makes sense
