I was recently in Paris at the Gare Lyon, missed my train and had a couple of spare hours to hang around the station. Here's some of what I saw...

The blue train, it reminded me of Coltrane's jazz and his connections to Paris

Playing with a fisheye and it's curved distortion, I thought of roller coasters and the fun of another kind of rail travel.

Of course every train station has to have a clock.

And finally I saw these at the end of the track, it made me think of the elegance of rail travel in days past.

Not bad, I like the mood and colour in the first one, but I like the last one the best... Nit quite the shot you would expect from a train station.

I missed commenting on these before. They're very nice. I like the shot using the fisheye. All the lines are very interesting, especially with the distortion.

The flower shot is an interesting story, but it seems like the foreground lighting overwhelms the shot.
