Music while we waited for our train

One of the things I like about Israeli train stations is that most of them have pianos that commuters can play while waiting for their trains. We had a short wait for our train home after our visit to the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History today, and we were treated to a mini-performance.

By the time this creative commuter finished playing, he’d attracted a small audience of fellow travelers who sat around him to listen to him play.

Settling In For The Ride Home

I don’t use Instagram’s Boomerang app that often. It’s fun with my kids at times. I was playing around with it last night when we were waiting for a train and captured this fun video:

Heading north on the Gautrain – part 2

As I wrote the other day, my wife and I took the train north for some family admin. I just finished processing my photos from the trip and I’m still a fan of Gautrain platforms and stations. Here are a couple of my photos from the album. I used the opportunity to experiment a little more with some of the images. The results may be technically incorrect but I like the effect, especially the one with the security guard and the commuter.

The Rosebank commuter

I grouped some of the photos I took this morning together into a set I’m calling “The Rosebank commuter”. It’s a working title, really, and it extends a couple photos I took while I was waiting for the train at the Rhodesfield Gautrain station a while ago which I titled “The commuter”.

I initially titled photos of one particular person “The Rosebank commuter” and as I edited more of my photos and came up with these particular ones I started thinking that, perhaps, the Rosebank commuter isn’t just one arbitrarily chosen commuter but rather a sort of multi-faceted personality and each of these people represent one of those facets.

You don’t really have to overthink it quite like I have, it’s just a thought that occurred to me while I was editing. I would like to know what you think about the photos?
