Londonist loves taking photos on the Underground but somehow they always come out a little drab.

We have often wondered what the solution would be but the best answer we ever arrived at to spruce the place up a bit was to invest more money on the trains and stations. I know. Who in their right mind would do such a thing? I mean if the carriage that spins us around the circle line was good enough for Clement Attlee then who are we to complain?

But now one creative soul has found a completely new way of looking at the Underground. Go have a look at and you'll find a gallery of beautiful black and white photographs that have been coloured in using Photoshop.

It makes for a rather pleasing effect. See, for example, Arnos Grove Southgate above, and Elephant Castle, below.


The icing on the cake is that the chap behind the site has put out a call for your stories to accompany the website (and possibly a book).

So think back to that time you got into an argument with Tom Baker on the Northern Line (for example) and drop him a line.

We found via Metafilter, which is where all the cool interweb kids hang out.
