Rob is the founder of Light Stalking. His love for photography pushed him into building this fantastic place, and you can get to know him better here

I recently took a picture similar to the first one in Madrid’s subway. The problem was that to shoot from I did was forbidden. They deleted my photos and now I probably have to pay a penalty :s… I would like preserve the photo and show to you now, I think it was a good shot.

Use some data recovery software on your memory card! Though it will only work of you haven’t taken and pictures since…
I always get paranoid taking pictures in London, but we can’t let them win! It’s our right to document the world around us!

In Madrid (I think) take pictures in subway is allowed, but I shot from a not allowed place (near rail). I tried recover the photos with a special software, but I took more pictures after deleting and I overwrote the memory space associated to them :s.

Maybe my actuation was wrong… but I don’t think delete my photos was necessary…

Wow, this makes the world’s subway systems actually look clean and beautiful, lol. But really this is a very unique array of photographs. Some of these are very creative. Now I feel like I need to photograph some of the NYC transit system (now if only I can photoshop the rats out…)
