today we will continue with guest posts. my second flatmate, but what is more important CREATOR of ‘the lurk’ game, has written a post especially for me. it is about history of how ‘the lurk’ started, and how it has developed through time. the post also includes some amazing photos taken by the author.
*** just to briefly remind you ‘the lurk’ are snapshots taken by you in the public transport of people you find funny or interesting.
I moved to London almost three years ago. While in my hometown I am usually travelling around the city by car, I am only using public transport to travel around London. The idea of “doing the lurk while commuting” was born because: (a) I have this rule that I don’t do anything associated with uni or work while I’m commuting (I have to reset my brain sometimes..), (b) I love observing other people (not in the creepy way, though!).
It’s been more than two years now since I started taking pictures of “unique” fashion choices on the tube. And I have to say, my “lurk photos” made my day so many times that now I just can’t imagine my life without a “lurk session” each time I’m on the tube or on a bus 😉
As my dear flatmate (and, at the same time, the author of doitmywayblog.wordpress.com) has already showed you some of my favourite shots in a recent post on her blog, I will present a smaller collection today. Still, I hope that this will inspire you to DO THE LURK next time you are on your way to work/uni!
