New Delhi railway station | January 30, 2011

Porters are common on Indian train stations, helping passengers carry luggage.

Captured this rare sight of an old porter in a pensive mood at the edge of a bustling train platform on a winter morning.

It took a 4x zoom-in and loads of patience to successfully shoot!

Faridabad manned railway crossing | Haryana, India | 1706 hrs | August 31, 2010 |

“IT WILL KILL YOU, YOU GODDAMN FOOL”
“Just a moment, Sir”

The train hurtling down the tracks at over 120 kmph.

“You’re under arrest for breaching railway security”
“Sir, Just a moment”

The roll and thunder growing louder on the metallic tracks.

“You’re dead”

Now hardly 100 meters away.
No time to zoom-in. No time to auto-time.
