Reflections in a Passing Train

Instagram has its foibles, one of which is that when shooting fast moving subjects the photo you get is from a split-second after you've actually pushed the button.

I've missed a few nice shots this way: picture freezes on the screen and you think 'Cool, nailed it'. Only to see a different shot rez-up in which one's gorgeously framed objects are absent entirely.

So, there's a little of the random going on but at the same time it means one develops a sense of 'perfectly off timing'.

I love shooting into train windows as they pass by. Sometimes I get a person on the inside. This shot has a train moving past me and another, static, train behind. The perfectly sharp window is from that train… a porthole of sharpness in the blur of the passing vehicle. Nice.
