Black and White #14 Fast Trains.

Susan Nolen's Fast Trains Photograph


I captured these two beauties whilst waiting for my train. It was late and I was actually early. Quite a time flux! Trouble is, you think to yourself, well I do anyway– Do I have time to grab a coffee? Then I mentally calculate the time to get off the platform, explain to the ticket man– I just want to get a coffee and I haven’t completed the return journey. If that goes well,  pop down to the lower level, hope the queue isn’t long, wait for the barista to make the coffee, trot back upstairs, and explain to a new ticket person, I hadn’t actually taken the train yet. Ask the other chap that was just here. My train was  late, so I fancied a coffee.

After all that nonsense, I could be late for the late train with a newly purchased ticket! Think best not!

So Black and White #14 Fast Trains

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    Yes, sometimes the coffee must wait (or in my case, the tea). But of course, those are the times we want it most!

  2. I’m so looking forward to taking trains again! Are the trains in this post part of Eurostar?

    that is really fun how you worded all that – and I think best not go to get that cup either. 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
