Animals on the Underground

This is one of those silly things that seem to grab my attention from time to time. I’m a bit smitten with this, but not entirely sure why…

Back in 1998, Paul Middlewick was staring at the tube map during his daily journey home from work when he discovered an elephant hidden in the shape of the tube lines, stations and junctions of the London Underground map.

Since then, the elephant has been joined by many other animals from bats to bottlenose whales. What fun!

Found via It’s Nice That.

    You know I find pictures of things on our parents Bathroom floor! While sitting on the toilet (as you do) they have tiles that are like a rippling water effect and I find myself almost half shutting my eyes to find something each time I’m there. Weird huh? – felt I had to share that!
