Agra Station. The lights kept going out but the natural light proved quite atmospheric. A longish exposure captured the moment. I manged to take quite a few images in this moment of darkness and light – and was swamped by the people around me who were fascinated at the instant image on the back of my digital camera… God I love India!

    What a fantastic description… It must be such an amazing experience to be in a place like that..

    The guy on the left must have been telling one heck of a story! And you’ve captured it wonderfully!
    Well done..

    God I love India, too. Such a unique place full of life and contrast.
    Great image! I was stuck at Agra station for about 3 hours waiting for a train to Delhi … yep, made a whole lot of new friends!

    love the lighting in this Paul (multiple shadows look great) the subdued tones work well within the subject matter at hand, good work.

    I love the way they can squat like that for hours. What I’d give……the colours are wonderful, Paul, so smooth, and the textures in their clothes stand out so well

    Thanks for your great comments – yes, Mel I love the textures in their clothes, it was so awesome just wandering and choosing what to frame – like being on a movie set at your free will – and this is real life too!

    Fantastic Paul. I know the feeling. I had the same experience in Africa. That feeling that the whole world is one massive set and you can frame it a hundred times over and still get a great shot. Which by the way you have achieved yet again.

    That is, without a doubt, a fabulous photograph. Well done.

    Oh! This I like very much. I like the grain, the tones, the capture of a moment of simple conversation, perhaps in the cold; huddling and waiting for work to come their way.

    A moment of quiet reflection in the chaotic abandon of an Indian train station.

    Hey Paul… so much of your work has an erotic edge to it which is great …but this one is quite different…I can feel the humanity and almost smell the atmosphere…never been to India but I think you have really captured the essence of whatt it is about…people, friendship, and living in the moment…wicked photograph.
