Every now the world colludes to hand you a shot on a platter.
Walking out the exit of the side platform after having finished a job last week, on the threshold of being home and eating dinner, this moment presented itself. I’ve looked at this frame and the station in general many hundreds of times, often dreaming a way to best photograph it. But here now was a great piece of “action”, or a human gesture to offset the brick and concrete construct.
I’m not sure I could have planned it any better – camera in hand, a fast lens in the kit, a sparse crowd and even a chair to sit on as I quickly made just six shots from which this is my favourite.
