This one reminds me of that old black and white weepy film, Brief Encounter.
Best wishes for the next few days. F

I did consider calling this Brief encounter, but under the circumstances I decided maybe that wasn't appropriate!
Cheers everyone, see you next week.

Definitely vintage film. Wonderful atmosphere, mystery and impersonality from the cropped figures and a natural vignette from the steam. The writing is very important too. A visual representation that invokes the sounds and smells of the steam age so well.

Moira, you left us with a GREAT shot -- wonderful mono. How did you part the steam just enough to make the "No 6 Area B Group" visible?

Congrats on the whole "gaining a son-in-law" thing. I am truly happy for you and Bill and the entire family.

An interesting and mind provoking shot Moira, well done.
And hey! who know's, you might get one or two pic's on Saturday Wink

Have a wonderful weekend Moira - my best wishes to you all. (Our turn next Saturday when Christopher's youngest boy gets married!)
I can't get enough of steam and steam trains - love the composition!
Hope you don't get steaming like the train.
Hope all goes well and a wonderful day for you all.
