A train journey is an opportunity. It’s a time to relax – someone else is doing the driving. There’s time to read a newspaper, book or magazine. Or just ‘chill’ and simply watch the world go by – enjoying the scenery from a different viewpoint.
I always try to find a window seat. As the train speeds up the world close by starts to whiz by in a blur. And I begin to see images within that blur. The rails become lines of colour, the foliage becomes a background wash, the stations a blur of yellow and white. The scenery creates impressions.
Here are a few from my trip down to London last week. The blur you see is straight out of camera – no further manipulation – just a tweak to levels and curves and colour temperature.
