On a train station somewhere in southern England, we were waiting for yet another train. The scenes surrounding me constantly had me happily shooting away, capturing as much as possible before our next train arrived…always on time too!
Often the camera saw more than I did at the time. For example, when I took this shot I had my eye on the various perspectives and vanishing points of the train carriages, tracks, station platform and roof…little did I suspect what else was in the frame!

An avid photographer, both still and moving, since I was 10 years old, I later discovered and developed a particular love of macro, which is one of my main genres. More recently, however, my repertoire has broadened to include stained glass windows and particularly the stunning beauty of outback New South Wales and South Australia.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of the Creation, captured and presented here for you.

    It was a clean train for sure. :-)
    The reflections are excellent.

  • yes!!! And I didn’t even notice them when I took the photo! But it is a testimony to the condition of UK trains…clean, quick and punctual! But still, I don’t recall them being quite as impeccable as this!..So glad you like it Richard..xx

    This is a first cleanliness and on time unbelievable
    Do like the reflection even down to the glass of beer held by passenger
    Is this the beer that reaches places other beers don’t/ perfect perspective

  • haha! Well compared to our trains, they are virtually perfect!! We were and are very impressed by the reliability. As to the glass of beer held by the passenger, I’ve just in and had a long hard look at a large view of this shot as I hadn’t noticed this passenger’s reflection…and I still can’t! You wouldn’t be referring to the drink being held by the man standing on the platform next to the woman would you? For he is refelcted in the window…?
    So glad you like this shot though…love your sense of humour and compliments all round..xxxx

    hey, how cool to discover this later! It’s an everyday shot made so interesting by the reflections.

  • Hi Marion…yes it was awesome and such a surprise to find these secrets hiding in plain sight. I was just focussed on other aspects at the time. I’m accustomed to this happening with macro shots as its impossible to see some things with the naked eye. But this is a first for me with a wide angle view. Couldn’t agree with you more about the everday made interesting!! Thank you for your kind comments and continued support and affirmation..xxxx
