What a great fish eye photo, and I'm over the moon that you shot this on film! People called me crazy when I went back to experimenting with film again, and now I mostly use film and develop and scan the negatives myself; so much fun!
BTW, I love the quote from Robert Frank you used for this photo

Train station is a nice place for fish eyes. I like the emphasized perspective and the tones.

Hmmm, film...what's that? :-)
This is a beautiful shot with an intriguing vanishing point that certainly draws me in.
A beautiful rhythm to the shapes of black and white contrast.

Always feel film takes a longer view of things . . seems to be more measured, somehow. The movement, angle and arrangement here adds to that strange effect.

an excellent way to see the world through the fish eye ! I love the grain of Lomo film, and I agree with the quote from Robert Frank !

Interesting photo. It feels like I'm looking through a surveillance camera, but with an artistic touch.

A very fine shot in fish-eye effectiveness, paired with a damned good quote.

I consider b/w an opportunity to discover the mid-tones...not smart enough to be despaired ; ] best…jf

A beautiful image. The B&W if gorgeous.

Superb--love the sense of motion the fisheye brings to this shot and the low-key exposure creates a great mood.

fine quote by a great photographer

One of my fab quote, so so so true, and your stunning perspective & distorsion with that marriage of B&W, shadows & light, illustrate it perfectly. Those who are on the verge of leaving the tunnel to see the light of Hope again and those who enter it with despair... until they find Hope again.

Stunning, Sharon....just maganificent...dark, moody, mysterious.....love it, love it, love it! You are using film again? I have considered playing around with it again...this image really makes me want to! Fantastic work! And the quote? So very true and so perfect with this image!

A cool and slightly creepy take on normal commuter life.

First of all, the title of this photo fits perfectly! I love the creativeness of this capture and I love the angle. Wonderful!

A very dark atmosphere here, like looking in a door hole ...

And somwhere in between hope & despair we find some great art that shows me without the both it would be a such a boring life to live. Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it makes me happy. Right now it feels good because of your fine frame. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
