Candid Metro by Ken Thomas Photography

Currently unavailable for purchase

A quick candid composition while sitting on the bench at the Smithsonian Metro Rail Station in Washington D.C.

Camera: Fuji S100fs

I have a passion for capturing the true reality of the moment. Shooting with 35mm film and digital capture in an analog style to bring home that pure beauty.

    Smoking on a train. That would get you a fine out here. Excellent record.

  • LOL, these trains only stop for a few seconds so this is quite the fleeting moment.

    such an awesome shot. i love its simplicity. perfect framing of the subject

  • Thanks Isa, I’m glad that the composition worked for this capture. I couldn’t move back so, 28mm worked just fine, it also let me use F2.8 at this focal length.
