Waiting For the Train

Lines, Lines
May 2007

My iTunes: Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol
(I have been listening to this one a lot lately)

There are so many things that I like about this photo....where do I begin? I snapped this as I waited for the train during my time out the other day in the city. It was a gorgeous day as you can tell. I like the clouds, the tracks, the paint on the platform, the roof...every bit. :)

Hope you all are having a good week!

Yes, lots and lots of lines here.

Welcome to your week and I hope the rest of it goes well.

Look at all that geometry in the pic...

Orderly....lines...all is right in Annas' world :)

Great pic Anna.

I think this is what you call "leading the viewers eye." You just can't help following the lines to the point of convergence. Very cool.

Oh...plus any picture with train tracks gets bonus love from me.

Aww, Anna, I like this... I've wanted to take a picture of train tracks for quite a while now, but I can't seem to find a good angle to take it. I really like how you took this.

I was JUST listening to Snow Patrol on my way home from work tonight. They're soooo good, and that particular song is one of my favorites.

I love the perspective and the vanishing point. I studied that in high school art classes and I loved to draw pics with vanishing points.

beautiful leading lines.

Call me a little boy, but I absolutely love trains. Everything about them; from the tracks to the conductors, the families and the weirdos.

exellent capture.
a tribute to lumiere bros?

I look at this shot and feel a sense of "homeward bound....." It's a yearning kind of pic for me.

I guess the toning is what I like best about this one. I have a hard time getting blue-toned photos to look right. This one looks right.

Sorry, I've never even heard of Snow Patrol.

Melody said...

Owww, I can see why you like this shot so much. I do too!

Mark said...

Reminds me of work as i work in a signal box.

Cheers Mark

Stace said...
