Waiting to go

By Richsr
Thanks to everyone for their comments on my last upload, very much appreciated.

Back to the 1940 weekend at the North Yorks Railway, and this little lady who turned out to be a real star.
Just a great expression for this one as she waited for the train at the station.

Thanks for looking.

Regards Richard

I can see the facial expressions almost as if she was being sent away for evacuation.

I grand capture.

The empty space adds to this I think as if she has no idea where she will end up. Which is what happened at the time.

A fine candid, Richard. That foot is so beautifully expressive!
Only the modern spectacle frames give the game away, but I suppose the old-fashioned NHS-style frames are increasingly hard to find.

Is she genuinely worried or a superb actress? Fantastic capture.

An excellent capture - her expression, the pose, and the clothing all combine so well - it does give a real feel of the evacuating child's worry.

Excellent Richard, you have caught the mood of evacuation really well in this one,
She does look a natural actress, the foot is perfect and the expression is pained but interested.
