Friday’s Pictures: Moving in a Train Station

Friday’s Pictures is a recurring topic that features excellent photos by several photo artists and it revolves around a theme each week.

This week the theme is Moving in a Train Station, be that a train or a human.

I find trains a fascinating subject. Train stations are one of my favorite places to photograph. Strangers in a hurry, moving trains, tearful rendezvous… You will never run out of subjects.

Beautiful use of light and motion. The hint of the woman makes it for me.

This photo is not framed nor in focus, yet it makes use of that to give us the sense of urgency of the stranger trying to catch the train. Love the gloomy overall feel given by the black and white. Perfect example of a good photo breaking many rules.

Another example of a gloomy visual feeling made possible with texture, desaturation and framing. Makes us feel like we are spying the lonely voyage of this stranger. Notice the use of a square frame to emphasize the high ceiling and give the traveler a more fragile look.

Bonus Photo of the Month is a photo made by me that you can use as you like under the Creative Commons Attribution Licence, which means you can use it for whatever commercial or non commercial purposes as long as you mention that it was made by me.

This photo was taken as I was passing by a florist at my old neighborhood, in Rue Cler. It’s a simple bunch of orange, tea, and yellow roses in a jar with a tag and the prices in french (euros). Enjoy!
