Journey


This is my entry for the July theme - Journey - in my online photo group. I've long wanted to have a go at one of these slow shutter speed shots. I only had my small camera with me last time I went to see my family in London. Nevertheless, time to spare before my train home and this great vantage point on the mezzanine at Kings Cross Station seemed too good an opportunity to miss. I took a few shots; how pleasing they look depends so much on the random positioning of the people standing still and those moving. This one works quite well, I think, because of the virtual semi-circle of people right at the bottom of the frame, which sort of holds the image and sweeps your eye up towards the centre.

The theme for August is 'Frame within a frame' so that's what I'm on the lookout for now.
