Lady at the station

I was travelling to another city, Hyderabad, in a train with my family. In the evening I took my camera out and started taking shots. The train came to halt at a station. That’s when my mom pointed out this lady to me. She said “take a picture of that old lady with the bag”.

This lady was sitting there. From the expression I can say that she was clue less. May be she didn’t even know the reason for her being there.

The old lady continued to sit there. I was waiting for her to turn. Turn towards me so that I can take a picture of her with her face clearly visible.

Then it happened. The old lady, sitting at the platform with her bag, stood up and turned towards me. I immediately hit that shutter button.

Something wasn’t right. I could tell right away by looking at her expression. All I could see was confusion.

Time to leave. My train started to move from the station. The old lady too was about to pick up that bag and move. God knows to where.

  1. Incredible photographs!! I am stunned..I don’t usually posts such comments on any blog but I am very pleased to see such images. Can you create a tutorial of the way you edit your images? I would really appreciate it…and many of us will too!

    1. Thanks so much diana. Yours and everyone else’s comments mean a lot to me. I’m glad when i connect with others through my images. I will definitely take your suggestion and will soon write a tutorial on b/w composition.

  2. Como te he comentado en el post anterior, todos tenemos nuestros momentos, y tu sabes captarlos. Lo de esta señora es verdaderamente penoso, tiene unos ojos que expresan mucha tristeza, ¡incréibles tomas!

    As I mentioned in my previous post, we all have our moments, and you know catch them. What this lady is truly painful eyes that has expressed great sadness, amazing footage!

    1. gracias Manoli, junto con la confusión también había tristeza en sus ojos. Es cierto. Bueno que puedo mantener mi cámara conmigo casi todo el tiempo para capturar esos momentos y compartirlos con otros usuarios.
