image captionAlan Hayes: "I took this at Moorgate Tube Station - there were 10 of these posters along one of the platforms. I like how they have all been partially ripped, exposing several layers of previous posters. I took this on my phone as a tester and went back two days later with my SLR but the posters and wall tiles had been completely removed for refurbishment."
