In the Tunnel

1/3 sec – f/4 – ISO 200 – 7.5mm

My life continues to be on a fast track these days. Sometimes I feel like a subway train racing through a tunnel, occasional streaks of light, a rare stop in a station, moving again. Not unpleasant, apart from the feeling that there is not enough time for all I need and want to do (like finally posting the images from the Instawalk through the Nuremberg subway system organized by the admins of the Nuremberg Instagram community that I did join a few weeks ago).

I made this photograph from the rear window of our automated (driverless) subway while the train was leaving a station. I used a slow shutter speed to convey the sense of motion and create the lines of light from the platform and tracks falling behind, nicely framed by the reflection of the standing passengers.

Taken with the Olympus PEN-F and the WALIMEX Pro 7,5mm 1:3.5 Fish-Eye. Image specs 1/3 sec @f/4 and ISO 200, 7.5mm focal length. RAW conversion and post-processing in Lightroom Classic CC.

Wish you all a great Wednesday!
