Heading north on the Gautrain

I’m heading to Centurion with my wife this morning for some civil service admin and, hopefully, a more efficient process.

I’m using the trip as an opportunity to capture more Gautrain images for my collection. I managed to delete my RAW files from my Rhodesfield collection (I still cringe when I think about it).

I think the Centurion platform is one of my favourites. Here are a couple HDR shots I took with TrueHDR a this morning. I have more on my Nikon which I’ll work on later.

Update: I started working through my DSLR photos and picked out these two to share in the meantime. I’m presenting at a conference next week so I’ll have to finish the photoset off in the next couple days.

Taking the train

I presented at a Protection of Personal Information Act seminar today and took the Gautrain instead of driving out to the venue. I took my camera with me and, on the way back, I took a number of photos at the Rhodesfield station just outside the OR Tambo airport. I enjoy taking the Gautrain (I’m not a fan of road traffic) and I love how the outdoor platforms are designed.

Here are some of my photos (along with one from one of the underground Sandton platforms – I like how the train’s light comes up behind the guard). I really like the empty platform photo and the three photos of the commuter looking at his phone.
