Passenger

 on 


I took this photograph a few days ago as an experiment. Two trains passing each other at hight speed. I was on top deck of one of them and this male passenger was on bottom deck of the passing train. Under normal circumstances there is not enough light to illuminate people on the train through the dirty and dark windows. This time I had a bit of luck as the evening sun shine straight onto this man’s face. For a photo taken through two sets of dirty and scratched windows at close to 100km/h it turned out quite OK. The slant in the windows comes from the perspective of my view.
