Scroll through any Londoner's Instagram feed – and many tourists' – and you'll probably spot a few familiar pics. From the view of Big Ben shot through the archway on the South Bank to the rounded dome of St Paul's Cathedral, Instagram has created a city iconography all of its own. In this series, blogger Flora Tonking will be showcasing those classic London Instagram shots, and also sharing some of her favourite unique takes on them.

And now, with most of us able to access the joy that is free wifi while we're hanging around at the station the London Underground has become a popular subject for Londoners' Instagram posts – from arty shots of curving tunnels to the capturing of a train as it whizzes by in a blur. The opportunities are endless!
