Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge

If you have visited my blog before, you know that I shoot some photos of the environment and people I observe while waiting for the next train, the next flight, the next tram…This post is no exception.

The transience of a train station serves a magnet for stories. Stories and lives that I imagine, and try to immortalize in each shot I make.  As all those fleeting moments pass through the lens of my camera, their stories speak of my wishes and fantasies for moments I still would like to live.

I am joining Lens and Pens by Sally, who hosts each Monday the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge.

The schedule theme for this week’s challenge is: Black and White

  1. These are intriguing photos. It shows how different we all are. Some people are alone, some looking down, some in groups, some smiling. Most of them are moving forward but some are just sitting in place. Lovely lovely photos. X


      1. Oh. I’ve been to that station. Once. Don’t remember it at all. And this is why I have to buy a smartphone, which for some reason I keep delaying.


                  1. I DO NOT REALLY HATE YOU. I hate me for not being more like you. I hate that you are so good at doing what you do. And I love that you are you. I’m in awe and jealous. And I kinda do hate that.

                    Get this: I just bought a ticket to Amsterdam (June), then on to USA…but may change my mind about that!! This is who I am. So…maybe it’s meet up for a coffee, or maybe not!


                    1. I know you don’t hate me yet.
                      You are not good for my ego as you keep feeding it and I hate fat egos.
                      But somehow this feels different as you don’t know me as much as I do (obviously with distorted self perceptions), so your opinion on me has been very interesting and instructive. Maybe I should accept compliments and give me more credits. Thanks for that. Serious.
                      🙊🙈🙉 I know nothing about your travel plans!


  2. I completely agree that train stations and airports lend to the creation of stories about where people are going or coming from and why… Your shots truly keep to this vibe! Fabulous!


    1. You are the master of that, Lia, immortalizing the lives of many New Yorkers during the daily commute.
      I miss your fabulous posts about them and stunning NYC photos! Please?


      1. Oh thanks ! I do love New York for all its people-watching possibilities !
        I promise I’ll get Friday Photo Feature back up and running soon!
        I swear I’ve been so cold this winter that I feared I’d get frostbite taking photos outside! But thankfully the weather is getting better. Thanks for all your support and inspiration :)))


        1. I know you couldn’t and I surely want you alive and healthy!
          Let’s wait until you can do it again !
          We need to inform the mayor!
          Fingers crossed for a better weather.
          You’re most welcome my dear!
