The Tuesday Inspiration: Where are you going?

by Helen Hooker February. 08, 2011 3646 views

Once again time conspired against me today and it was well and truly dark by the time I had an opportunity to take a photo for today??s theme. I tried a few things out indoors with no success so decided to go for a walk with my camera to see if I could find inspiration at the village railway station. As I stood on the platform this non-stopping train came racing through and it occurred to me it could be travelling to somewhere close by or to somewhere further afield, more in line with the theme. As I didn??t have my tripod with me I used a high ISO and a slow shutter speed so this shot is rather lacking in sharpness. To make up for this I decided to play around with it in Lightroom to give it a gritty, black and white feel.

Thanks to Dan (Danrav []) for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??Urban landscape??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stefan [] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.
