Train Shots

7 April 2008

Two shots taken from opposite sides of the same train track. These are two of some photos I posted in my other blog, Photography On the Move, a photoblog I created for shots I took while inside the train. I was challenged not only by the movement of the train but the reflections created in the windows and other in between stuff from me and my subject.

I am encouraging everyone also to send in their own contributions of photos taken while inside a train...Sometimes one cannot tell if the photo is really from inside so it is up to those who will submit to send honest shots. Email your contributions to mirage2g(at)gmail.com including your name, url, and a little story about the photo. Thank you!

  1. Gizelle, I'm curious. In the second photo, is that a purposeful design or graffiti? Either way I think it adds interest.

  2. Hi Chuck! Graffiti, this is the same train track from that photo I used for the March theme day...everytime I pass there, the walls of the track has something new! Most of my train shots are the stations and the colorful graffiti on the (dangerous) train tracks =) Send me one from Seattle ok? Thanks!

  3. Nice shots of the Vienna skyline. In what part of Vienna was this? Is this the business district or are those residential buildings?

  4. Panaderos: 2nd district...both are residential areas, just cross over to the other side of the trainstation and you see those big silver commercial buildings but they are actually further (1st district). Thanks!

  5. Sorry about that spray painting. It's a disgrace to see in a beautiful city like Vienna.

  6. There is definitely a feeling of movement in the first one.

  7. Both photos are very beautiful. If you hadn't said so, I wouldn't have guessed it was the same spot shot from opposite sides of the bridge. The view in the top photo shows a more tranquil kind of place, doesn't it?

    Re: the comments for the individual photos on my new blog, I've disabled them until I'm done presenting all the 'hoods, then the original comments for each photo will be visible, as well as the comments for each series.

    Have a lovely weekend. :)

  8. Hi Giselle, I am also interested in the grafitti at the side of the track. When did the artist do it? Middle of the nite when the tracks are free?

  9. There are no trains around these parts, only buses. Otherwise I would send you a train photo.

    I really like the idea behind it, and I hope that it's a success.

  10. Nice shots; I wonder where did you take them. Which train?
    Thanks for your help at Blogtrotter. Larger pictures of the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, but still the grey shadow behind... :((
    Have a great weekend!

  12. indeed it doesn't look like it was shot inside a train. i'll check some of my pictures taken inside a train and i will send it to that email address.

  13. Hi Per, in my point of view, the graffiti becomes a special feature so that those who are travelling long hours have something to look at outside the train in case they forgot to bring a book or a psp =D I just don't agree with vulgar grafitti and those, a little abstract coloring is ok...

  14. Sidney, my hand was quicker on the second photo? Hope you are ok now =)

  15. Yeah Fenix, you just go on the other side of the trainstation and it is very different. The tranquil side as you said...there's stronger wind too. I'd feature more about that area soon. Ok I'd come back often and see your series...I was just really confused the first time I saw the layout before going to the companion blog..

    Thanks! Happy weekend too!

  16. That's the mystery in it Murphy, all the thrill of not being caught and the means of sneaking into the trail tracks are part of their routine...

  17. Kris, Yeah actually I put on the about page in the other blog that photos also while in the bus or car, or tram, =D Please send them too! Thanks!

  18. Hi Alice! This is part of the Danube but most probably the Donaukanal (Danube canal) and quite distant from the one I featured during theme day. This is the cruise line for tourists...

  19. Hi Gil! Please send me an email and I will send you the html for it =)

    I took the trains going to Mödling, S2(Schnellbahn line 2) maybe...that would be any of the two I posted before. Thanks for dropping by...

  20. Lara; you are very near and can come back easily...or? How long do you usually stay in Vienna?

  22. Interesting photos. I only wish we had a train here for my commute. Perhaps one day.

  23. Lets hope Dusty, but if you have photos while inside the car or bus that would definitely do...=) Send them in!

  24. I like the first one. There's movement and it creates a different feeling.

    :D
