Sunset seen on my way home
« on: June 16, 2022, 14:53:45 »
Today I went to Yokohama to see my photographer friend who used to work with me for interviews to various musicians.

On my way home, I saw this beautiful but a bit ominous setting sun from the train, and I found the clouds lit with the strong orange/red remaining light when I got off the train at my nearby station.

I understand that composing shots from a moving train is very difficult. However, i find that you nailed it with the last shot.

Shape echo, colour echo, juxtaposition of man vs machine, grown-up world vs. children's play.

Marvellous!

Hans, thank you for kind words.  But I would have made it clear that the first image is the only one that was shot from the running train.  This is just a series of snap shots of the sequential order beginning with the shot from the running train and end with the image shot in front of the door of my place.

Ah, so that makes it craft rather than happenstance.

Bravo!
