Station to Station

“I love these two photographs side by side because they look like one shot with a ghost reflection. This is the Eurostar, and from the cityscape outside it looks like we had just pulled out of Waterloo Station. I always thought it was a little insulting that the French arrive in London to… Waterloo. Ouch.

The British finally changed that. I have my beloved T4, which I have now returned to after a few years’ flirt with digital; film is truly the butch top of the two and digital is fun but flaky at this point. Both stations, London and Paris, are great fun for getting a pile of trash magazines and newspapers and devouring them en route. Always figure out the sun side of the train or plane for optimal light.”
