  • this train looks old but spacious.. it has a grungy feel to it.. nice shot! :D

  • Fascinating capture Joe. Excellent perspective and great shot of building and train. Like the tones and dark contrasts here.

  • also want to say it’s a tight composition but doesn’t feel in the least claustrophobic – the bit of sky you’ve included is great.

  • the red reflection is cool – but i also like the red and grey composition (one of my favorite color compositions) and the cool blue light reflected in the building windows.

  • Wow love the angle you shot this at. I like the gritty look of the city. btw thanks for commenting and visiting my blog!

  • Lovely composition and I agree with Michele, grey and red looks good. I also love that fire escape (?) on the right. Lovely shot.

  • fuck what kind of camera and lense do you use to do that!

    i love your messy street pictures! it’s simple but i can’t have this in my street pictures!
