    It was a boring and very early trip we made to mother-in-law the weekend befor the last. It was dark, cold and we've been almost to ourselves in the wagon for the first two hours, so there weren't even interesting people to look at. I cheered us up by taking some pictures. Here's the one I like best:

    What do you think about it?

    This was early in the morning!
    Take that same train at night and it'll look all different! ;)

    And yes, I see that the camera is lower than the window and still wonder why not even the top of the camera-HOLDER's head can be seen!? I.e. the PHOTOGRAPHER! ?!?!

    Nah, sure enough not. :mrgreen:

    Yep, it was standing on the waste opposite of the one you see underneath the window. Since I wanted to catch the weird lighting conditions in the train I didn't #use the flash. So I placed the camera there and used the timer to avoid shaking.

    BUT, if you're the attentive kind you CAN see me. Or at least part of me. Happy searching. :p First to find me gets a can of cyber coke.

    Yeah, reasonabl clean it was. The "nice"-factor depends stongly on how long you have to spend there. After a total of 10 ours in these lousy trains you wouldn't consider them nice anymore. :er:

    BTW, did you happen to notice the tag that someone scratched into the surface of the window-pane? I can't make my mind up if I like it or dislike it. On one hand it fits with the atmosphere of the train, on the other it draws attention from my wife (which at least to me is a bad thing).

    Sorry to disappoint you, LaFoto, but I wasn't behind the coats. So no coke yet. But if you manage to find me, your coke will be a Fanta. ;)

    Oh, and thank you that I now keep looking at the coats trying to figure out which part of them or around them looks like me. LOL :lmao:

    Is it not you, immediately to the left of the coats, in the seats on the other side of the middle aisle? I seem to be seeing a hairline, forehead and eyes, maybe with a hand touching the side of the face? So not IN the coats (I have long abandoned THAT idea) but behind them. Probably quite a bit further behind them?

    Yeah, I like it. Nice angle :) hiding the camera out.

    Is that you (read: your finger) at the edge of the frame, on the right?

    The woman in the window has a reflection of herself behind her, with her face the other way. Then there is a reflection of someone else righ after that. Is that you?
