I took the train to Glasgow recently and was out of sorts with the whole day’s experiences, don’t ask me why! Though I took some photos both on the train and while I was there, somehow I didn’t feel in a jolly mood. Usually I visit Glasgow when friends visit and so I don’t travel alone and perhaps I just felt isolated. In fact I headed back to catch an earlier train home and sat feeling really miserable in the station when I should have been outside toting the camera.
Despite that, this young woman appealed to me as a subject and a close crop brings out her jacket and lovely hair.
Though I was on a train I have classified this picture as street photography because it’s the same approach that I use with street photography. It would probably be more accurate to call it an environmental portrait.
