Takes me to a different world. Trains with separate compartments and corridors - today's democratic carriages just aren't the same. The suitcase does look lost - maybe it cannot remember which compartment it belongs to? Oh dear, I'm rambling, it's age. Good one, Doug. I like the angle of the case against all those verticals.

I also remember this one Doug; mono gives at a different appeal and I prefer it to the colour.

I haven't seen it, but I love the b&w; will have to look for the colour version. I remember these carriages all too well (spent many a happy hour commuting in them - and standing in the corridors!! Sad

Lovely. Agatha Christie springs to mind. These days the case would've been blown up by security by now.

Quietly telling its story.
Excellent use of composition and mono.

This excellent mono leaves the colour behind, in my opinion; just as the owner has left the briefcase.
The slight, dispersed are of light on the case is important; even more so is the shadow. A classy photo.

I have just noticed that the catches are up but the lid is closed: does that make the mystery an open and shut case????

What a mystery this is. Love the mono. It looks ready to split open any minute and reveal something of great importance.............Sandy

Thank you all so much for your comments - good to read. The pictures does asks questions and that's what I like about it. Yes I agree with you all - works better in mono. I must get a print done for the wall.

Have a nice weekend..

I find this quite troubling!
Is it a bomb? Who left it? When will it be picked up?
Asks lots of questions.
I think another upload of the empty carriage might soothe my nerves!

Now if that was left in N/Ireland a bomb Squad would take it away and blow it up ! A good photograph of times gone by . I can remember sitting on my case because there were no seats left !xxx
