Trains & Planes

The London Underground and an airplane on its way to London Heathrow. I was on the Piccadilly Line on my way to LHR to receive someone at the airport, when we were told to de-train at this station; our particular ride had been vandalized at the previous station. While we were waiting here on the platform waiting for another train to be brought into service, I noticed this aircraft low in the sky. I happened to have my camera and hurriedly tried to grab a shot; in hindsight, I could have done better.

great capture of the two in one!
Nice opportunistic shot!
Ayush Basu: Yes, it is one of those hits-and-misses, you do manage to capture some positive things and miss out something else. Thanks for stopping by.
Two types of transport in one shot but what a nuisance, all because of some idiot.
Ayush Basu: It did throw plans awry quite a bit.
Not only trains & planes,
Ayush, but people as well. For a quick shot you did a great job.
Ayush Basu: Thanks Beverly
The plane adds to what is a nice candid people picture
You have the stillness of the train, motion in the plane and candid's of people, not bad for a quick shotsmile
Ayush Basu: Thanks for the comment, Linda

nice capture
This whole shot looks good to me, especially as it was "spur of the moment". Most of us think we could have done better, given time to compose and set up. You didn't, so I think this is great.
Ayush Basu: Thanks for the comment smile
fine capture. i love the people and their expressions
You've caught the mood well..Nobody looks very happy at the thought of waiting..Good one Ayush.
Which stop? Boston Manor?
I used to live in West London...

Ah, we always feel like we should have or could have done better. I personally like this. The little element of seeing the structure through the door and window is terrific.
Ayush Basu: I got very lucky with the lighting I guess, it could have very well turned out to be a pitch dark interior of the train with something quite featureless visible through the window.
What a presence of mind. Captured both Train and Plane same time in quick action. Great !
