An excellent piece of photo journalism, you have captured the tedium of travel beautifully. I like the unusual angle too.

Trapped in confined space... Good morning neighbour, your subjects stayed still for you. For what probably seemed like an eternity.
I remember years ago travelling back from Paris on the Eurostar with my elderly mother. We were sitting behind a bunch of football fans coming home after an international at the Stade de France. They had the crate of beer open for breakfast.
One of them had a bump on his head which was the nearest to a cartoon image that I have ever seen in real life - it was like a hen's egg sitting on his skull. With a small sticking plaster on top. We resisted for so long, then my mother grabbed a picture over the top of the seat...

Another superb candid.
I love the Eurostar - although I have not used it for many years. I would need to wear ear-plugs these days as I am allergic to other people's head-sets!

How on earth did people manage without gadgets? In a quite crowded train a few days ago I counted only two people without things in their ears, and one of them was me. I quite like the natural sound of the train myself.
Another superb capture given your excellent treatment.

Great candid shot.It will be interesting in years to come to find how many people suffer hearing loss with sound so near and I suspect loud in the ear.
