Neat photo! Definitely gives you the feeling of a place in motion :) Happy weekend!

I love all the motion in this image. And with b/w it feels like it's a scene from a movie.

Ooooo, I've been there! Many years ago my college choir came to sing in England and Wales. Fun times . . . I'd love to come back to see how things have changed. We spent New Year's Eve in Trafalgar Square. I'll never forget the guy with pink and purple hair!

I always feel a sense of drama in airports and railway stations, and this picture captures it perfectly for me!

Have an excellent weekend. :)

Great photo. I love railway stations. Now I'm wishing I'd used a station photo for my photo hunt this week! :)

I love it. You have captured the movement but also made it look like it could be from an old film. Very nice.

Annie said...

Nice photo of that public place - love the way it looks in black and white.

Lorna said...

I love black and white pictures, but this B & w is a real bonus. It looks like it's moving in front of my eyes.

You always have a awesome take when it comes to photography!

Marta said...

This is a great shot. I love it in black and white. The motion gives it an 'old time' feeling also. It doesn't look modern and could have been taken years ago.

Wonderful photography! I love black and whites, it evokes drama and sets the tone of the setting, like it's been taken long ago. Blurs always give us a feeling that it's in motion.

Works well in B&W. I always feel there's something very emotive about railway stations.
