Eating on the Tube

By SlowSong
I was alone in the carriage when a woman got on and unpacked not only a hot meal, but a knife and fork to eat it with. It smelled lovely. I had to hide behind the screen to take the pic as I was a bit obvious otherwise but the train was very jiggly so all I got was a blur. Except you can just see her hand in the act of forking in another mouthful.

A ghostly image with just enough detail to make it interesting. - gary

It's that very elegant, elongated hand. And the nose...
I am often amazed at how much precision can be conveyed by motion blur.

This is really rather lovely, if not an image to view in a hurry.
As the eye gradually distinguishes shapes in the darkness, so it gradually distinguishes features in the blur. Once I recognised the TfL liveried upholstery all became clear.
And I am rather envious of the effect.

Definitely a bit of camera shake here, Chris! Wink But what a super impressionistic image it is! Really makes you look at it, excellent work Wink

The slow shutter has given her a witch's elongated hand and nose, Chris. As Bill says, this needs time to understand and then enjoy.
But, come on...fess sneezed at the moment of pressing the shutter, n'est pas?Grin

Beguiling, odd and strangely fascinating.
