(North Wales Notebook) The Other Train 2/5

We had a weeks holiday in Porthmadog, North Wales in early September and so for the next few weeks I will be featuring a variety of images and collages, and a mix of subjects, which I hope you find entertaining.

 

Following on from last weeks theme of Welsh Narrow Gauge Railways this weeks images were all taken from the same place, an open carriage window in a train on the other side of the platform at Tan-y-Bwlch on the Ffestiniog Railway.

 

This is the first of two shots of this gentleman with what a think is a Nikon shooting across the platform to our train.

You're obviously missing something along the line!
Brian Walbey: I was too busy taking the shots for this series to see what was going on elsewhere.
A one handed happy snapper, I bet the picture wasn't straight
Brian Walbey: Probably not Bill, we'll see tomorrow, I have another shot of this chap.

I was always warned not to lean out in case my head was knocked off.
Brian Walbey: I don't think they let you do this away from stations Chad.
One photographer to another. Excellent capture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Laurette.

No doubting this is summer, Brian. Still risky exposing bits of flesh, though.. it is Wales after all! I hope he was happy with his shot.
Brian Walbey: So do I Alan, I was certainly happy with mine as you are seeing this week.
Meeting of the lens's eh Brian
Brian Walbey: Something like that Janet.
Is he photographing the same scene that the little doggie and the fellow in yesterday's image were gazing at, Brian. They all seem to be looking in the same direction.
Brian Walbey: Might be Beverly, I was so busy photographing people on the other train I didn't look down the platform.
I would be petrified I would drop my camera! Good shot Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Yes he doesn't seem to have much of a grip on it.
Nice candid Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
You caught him well Brian..Makes an interesting picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid. He's trying harder on Wednesday.

Brian Walbey: The triangular sign is "No Smoking" in the Welsh language Ayush.
