Other side of the world

Taken at Columbia Station in New Westminster, BC.

I was waiting for my skytrain and saw the boy and the girl on both sides of the platform. I took a few shots with them standing then the train just came in, I adjusted the speed to 1/13s, clicked 4 times and found this one.

    An amazing example of head up shooting... You captured a wonderful instant and your idea of making it grayscale fits with the image...
