A misty sea-line meets the wash of air

Arriving and departing London today, into St Pancras and out from Liverpool Street.

I'm always struck by the statues in St Pancras whenever I am there, and this time took a moment to try to capture one of them.

The poet Sir John Betjeman was a powerhouse behind saving the station, and I love the statue of him, at once both awe inspiring and approachable.

Several children came up and hugged him while I was lining up the shot, which is a lovely tribute in itself.

My blip title is part of the inscription underneath the statue, which is from his poem Cornish Cliffs.
