This women was sitting at St Pancras International train station when a few of us went in there to grab some photos.
I imagine she was waiting for a train, and found this nice comfortable spot to listen to some music, check emails and perhaps play a little Candy Crush on Facebook.
Quite liking the scene, I of course took a picture – though wish I had gone ahead and switched from my 14mm to something with a bit more zoom. I cropped a lot out of the image to get what you see here, and I think a different lens with different compression may have made the subject stand out a little better. I ended up moving the couch off center as well so that I could get both plant pots in.
In fact, in the future I think I may not only change the lens, but attempt to get in there and change the location of different items in the scene as well. I guess that would lose some of the spontaneity of it though.
Meanwhile, I’m off to Berlin today for what looks to be a rather wet weekend. Hopefully I’ll get some breaks in the weather; though photography will be taking a slight backseat on this trip it would be nice to capture some of the iconic stuff out there. Have a good weekend all.
