(North Wales Notebook) The Other Train 3/5

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.

 

The same gentle man as yesterday finding something interesting on the platform to shoot and really getting down to it, both hands on the camera today.

 

This is my 900th.post on Shutterchance if my arithmetic is correct.

well done on no. 900, Brian. Only having a free susbscription, I've lost count of mine.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.I was tempted to go free when renewal time came up but for one reason or another I don't get out a lot so decided to stay as is for the time being.
Great shot. Looks like he is going to fall out this time .
Brian Walbey: Wait till you see the guy tomorrow Laurette.
He must like what he saw to think its worth two hands lol, good capture Brian smile
Brian Walbey: One hand up on yesterday Linda that's for sure.
He is taking it seriously. He seems to be looking downwards.
Brian Walbey: I should have looked out to see what all the interest was.
Congratulations on your 900th Brian. It has certainly grabbed his interest
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, I wish I'd looked to see what interested him.

If he leans out much further there could be a nasty accident. Congratulations on the 900 - only 100 more to go till the big one!
Brian Walbey: And I already have part of that 100 already uploaded until mid-April
This is an even better candid than yesterday's shot. Looking forward to tomorrow's athlete.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila.
I wonder what he found so interesting? 900 eh...well done sir!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. I wish I'd had a look up the platform but I didn't.
Even better than the first!
