  • You don’t often see people being so relaxed on a tram, but it wasn’t crowded, so he just stretched out. I had plenty of time to frame the shot. Thank you.

    Great shot Rhoufi, lighting and framing perfect!! :-)

  • Thanks Ell. Seems we have been very observant on trams recently. They’re much better than trains really. This guy’s posture was so unusual and I had a clear shot – great when you have time to set it up isn’t it.

    Love the guy and his posture! Also LOVE the environment he’s in…the lines and lights and shows. It’s like a visual symphony. WONDERFUL!!!

  • Yeah, he’s so relaxed. It taken on one of our trams – we love our trams and I love travelling on them.

    where traveling by public transport seems fun…. lovely shot!

  • Thanks Photon. Well for a street photographer our trams are really cool: slower than trains; more stops; closer to shop fronts…. They’d have a revolution if they tried to phase them out.

    Nice capture, Rhoufi – the lighting is ideal!

  • Thanks Laurie. Do you have trams in Canada; they’re the best for photos – they go slower, you can get shots out of windows and the subjects outside are closer. We love out trams in Melbourne ;-))

    We have trams/streetcars mainly in the major cities, like Toronto….

  • I’m going to get to Canada one day. I want to see those floating, white, icebergs the size of office blocks (sic!) in St John during the thaw, Newfoundland as well as Vancouver, Toronto,… all of it ;-)))

    It’s a Saturday, the tram rarely empty, the falling light is appealing…why ‘knot’ relax oneself?
    Cool observance, Rhoufi.
    Very cool…..
