Photographer's Note

I’m sure most of us, if not all, tend to look around for photo opportunities even in our down time. More often than not, that’s when I seem to get the best of luck in realizing something I wouldn’t have otherwise…and this was such an instance.

While sitting around and waiting for my train back to Nice, this simple, every day scene was literally passing me by. :)

Unfortunately I didn’t have my tripod at the time, so I remained as still as possible to try and capture the motion of the train…which could have used a slightly slower shutter speed (ooh, say that five times fast ) for better effect, but it most likely would have resulted in a blurred foreground as well. I just wasn’t gifted with the ninja-like steady hands of so many others.

I think the gentleman waiting on the bench was so involved with his phone, he didn’t even know his train had departed without him! lol Bon voyage!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend everyone!
