@Nan: thank you so much :)
watching the photo , I didn't have a sense of travel in it , maybe the scene behind the train windows could help . of-course I agree with Nan on the BW effects :)

@payam: Thank you for your observation payam. Actually I was concerned about that and tried to show the window on the left more, but it just wasn't working out. The photo was shot at a sharp angle and so the window that is visible directly beside him is nearly impossible to see. I liked his pose and the mood he created, so I decided to go with it anyway :)
introspective moment caught...bravo, and nice b&w treatment as well...I've gone through some of your portfolio, really good work, not easy to get past the 'surface' into the more subtle quality of feeling...i've added you to my 'blog watch'...
hey, I've got an A630, bought new this past April, nice image quaility for the build and size cam it is, especially love how it handles grain for b&w conversions, (why I bought it) next on my to do list...and man, i just love the swivel lcd...

@Momo: Thanks so much Momo, for your thoughts, comment and for the add :)
I agree about the Canon Powershot series, a great camera and I am very happy with mine, which I've had for almost 2 years now. It's not my main camera that I use (I love my Nikon D70) but I take it with me everywhere I go, which is near impossible to do with my DSLR as I travel by train and bus daily. Thank again!
What an alluring photo, perfect in black in white, stylish and classy...Wow, you're gorgeous ;)

@Lorraine: Thanks so much Lorraine! I can drawn to his face in the light on my way home work last night. He seemed so peaceful, so lost in thought. I also saw him in black and white, an old film clip, maybe an Ingmar Bergman film....something like that.
I had to sneak him photo, so that's exactly what I did.
No, that is not me, although he is rather androgynous in appearance, and yeah, I wouldn't mind resembling him ;-)
beautiful capture! nice light and editing

@Magda: Thanks Magda, I am rather happy with this shot as well :)
Thoughtful and moody. It makes me wonder of what she it thinking. Great portrait!

@Tracey: Thanks Tracey. Yes, I agree and too wondered what he was thinking. So lost in thought and light...
A thought provoking image. It is intriguing so one wonders about the person.

@Michael Skorulski: thank you Michael...indeed it does, which is exactly why I felt compelled to take his photo.
Of course silly me, I've seen your 'about' photo and you are truly gorgeous, and looking very feminine I have to say, but granted this guy certainly is androgynous...after all the soul had no gender, I wonder if there will come a day, when humanity will look very much like him, Hey, maybe he's a prototype ;)
17 Aug 2008 2:57pm
@Lorraine: heh heh...no worries Lorraine! If I were to look like a guy, I would chose him ;-)
I think my title may have been a tad confusing regarding the 'me'. I tend to write in the thrid party, and the third party being the 'me' in the photo, which is actually the 'he'. Now I'm confused...I like your idea on the prototype!
I have looked at this for a very long time. I love it. Sexuality aside, the light is spectacular and handled extremely well. You could not have posed the person any better. Did he know you were shooting him? Wonderful processing.

@Michael Rawluk: Thank you Michael! No, this is a candid shot and he was so lost in thought he had no idea I was taking his photo. This is also the reason I prefer to shoot people candidly, as there is no 'posing' involved, that and the fact that no one wants to pose for me anyway ;-)
It was rather interesting to shoot on a moving train, standing, trying to hang on and hold my belongings on top of it all.
works perfectly to me, wonderful photo

It's a portrait of a mood, an attitude , a state of mind.

Good B&W image, I like the softness you have used, and the expression of the person traveling is superbly captured.
17 Aug 2008 8:20pm
i get it without the title, so...bf

Nice portrait. I like the far away look and the softness of the image.

BC, I'm becoming a huge fan of your stuff. Incredible!
18 Aug 2008 12:32am
Speaks of those pensive moments that you have during those busy commuter days.
18 Aug 2008 3:56am
cinematic indeed! a beautiful and timeless shot here BC -- wrapped in light, textures and emotional dialogue. marvelously conceived and executed! just fantastic, bravo!

Déjà dit, mais tant pis. Scène très cinématographique. Belle ambiance.

Beau portrait , beau noir & blanc !

An absolute masterpiece, Sharon...
I love this hard b_w. The hard light on the hands and the face conduct the eyes to the glasses and then one think about your title :)

@Phototherapy: Thank you so much for finding this. This is an image I am rather pleased with as he was completely unaware of my presence. His expression was one of being so far away, I wanted to capture that magic :)
You know, I am working on the same idea for a serie. Saturday, I was shooting buses and cars with a 400mm to get that kind of lost thoughts, but they saw me half of the time :) Not easy at all.
I LOVE this image
