Monday morning I went into town very early arrived just as the sun came up a little after 7am. Sucks you now have to pay extra to get a Travel Card before 9.30am. Whats with this government, you have to pay 40% more because your going to work WTF!

The sky was really bad and there was very little of interest after the sun came up in the clouds so I concentrated on some street photography type shots. Here’s a lady off to work after collecting her coffee along Milk Street.
