photoblog image Waiting at Arley

Waiting at Arley


The Severn valley Railway 1940's event began last Saturday, I was late getting there, it was crowded, very hot in the Valley and difficult to photograph, but then that's life.

This was taken through a dirty railway carriage window whilst it was stopped at Arley station. They were waiting for the next train to Bridgenorth.

Love her expression. I think the dirty carriage window actually helps the picture.
Les Auld: So do I Bill, so do I. Thanks for the comment.

Cracking photo Les
Les Auld: Thanks Vintage, appreciate the comment.
Obviously they haven't checked the train times in Bradshaw

Excellent stuff Les ... and thank goodness for dirty windows

Les Auld: Probably Bradshaw was suspended for the war years, thanks for the comment Richard.
Fabulous shot Les, loads of atmosphere.
Les Auld: And plenty of crowds Brian, thanks for the comment.
Looks very authentic, Les. I agree, the dirty window was a positive. This image could very well be a still taken out of a 1940's movie.
Les Auld: The effect I was working towards Beverley, thanks for the comment.
I love this shot Les, the dirty window has definately added to the age of it.
Les Auld: Thanks Linda,it does seem to work OK.
