Spotting Out-Takes

One thing that has come out of my Freedom Pass Project is the Spotting Out-Take. Basically, I share a shot on twitter that suggests that it was a good day to be train spotting. It’s very unusual for that shot to actually have a train in it😉 Although it’s usually on the station👍 This isn’t a new thing, I have often included photos of passengers amongst my train shots before but Twitter has given them a purpose.

So here’s this elderly Lady texting at Baker Street. She realised I was taking a photo and struck a pose, for which I’m grateful – without a Human presence, this would be a dead shot👍

On a much larger scale, everyone knows you meet under the clock at Waterloo don’t they? If not, they do now😉

  1. All the photos are really excellent and engaging, Martin, but the next to last photo is really special. The scale of the people below as well as the large clocks is really excellent. Nicely done!
