great capture John
John Prior: Many thanks Zed.
Very nice John, it does make you wonder what they are thinking about as they sit and wait.
John Prior: Thanks Les, yes I wonder, looks like he wants to engage in conversation with the guard/driver
I am speechless!!!!!!!

That light! The crispness, the detail, the sharpness.


I have working Zenight B and a couple more Russian golden oldies, amongst which an Industar 50 FT-2. Nice playground stuff!!
John Prior: Thank you Marion, this was the f2 Helios, it could produce good results. An affordable SLR camera when I first started work smile

Excellent picture John, and it shows that the old Zeniths were very capable cameras in the hand s of a capable photographer.

What really gets me here is the brick wall in the background - shielding the two men who couldn't be any more different from each other. I wonder if they are looking forward to the train arrival or if the one with the hat is purposefully looking away because he does not wish to speak to the other... And then there is still the brick wall... it doesn't really matter what the two men are doing there, because the bricks will always be there.
I love bricks. Sorry for rambling smile
John Prior: Thank you BK, much appreciated.
