Competing Elements...

Undoubtedly Best Viewed Large or On Black


You'd think that it would be almost impossible to upstage that incredible train/engine shed roof design wouldn't you?


I would have, and had fully intended to get a clear shot of it.


I patiently waited for the last train to discharge its latest cargo of passengers, shoving the empty space ahead of them forwards, onwards to the exit, the rest of their lives and, (I hoped) smartly OUT of the shot I wanted to take.


I had already raised my camera, and was about to frame it without too much platform foreground and then these two passed carefully by; making their way along the platform in the wake of human detritis and the eddies of air settling around & about them.


At that point I couldn't imagine the shot without them in it. :)


See where this picture was taken. [?]
