I don't know the time of the day of this photo, but probably he has his reasons to be pensive. Or tired. Or discouraged.
I don't feel this as an optimistic image...

Interesting contour, or what one calls it, levelling?

I felt just like that every morning before I got on the subway.

Tinsie said...

Maybe he's wondering whether to take the train or not!

Great shot. You just that one moment that most people miss.

i like how this shot reflects the one person standing there, obviously waiting... essentially bored...maybe tired...or he just wanted to hang in there for awhile...^-^

Jacob said...

I'm with Vogon Poet...he's either pensive, or sleeping, or perhaps crying...

A fascinating photo, for sure!

The mood in Norsborg was quiet and somber due to a recent fatal bike crash. It did affect us all, locals and visitors.

The crash had happened right outside the station a day or two earlier. Lots of people had gathered and out of respect for friends and relatives I chose not to take any photo at the scene.

Vogon Poet: This was a Sunday afternoon.

Svenske Floyd: I was out snapping photos of subway trains when this gentleman placed himself right in the image, thereby making it a lot more interesting.

B Squared: Don't we all!

Tinsie: Probably not. This is an end station so all trains leave in the same direction and for the same destination.

Babooshka: Thanks, I like this photo too.

arabesque: Waiting at least, that much is sure.

Jacob: Appreciate that. Let's go for pensive.

Thanks all for catching this in-between moment with us.

Jag jobbade på Kärsbyskolan där i tio år. Lärarna gillade inte att höra "Norsborg, slutstation" varje morgon, de som kom med tunnelbanan alltså...
Vi kallade ibland Norsborg för Morsborg.
Det är en fantastisk strandpromenad mellan Norsbor och Hallunda längsmed Mälaren.

I read about that horrible bus accident. It does have a Sunday feeling somehow this photo.

Mo said...

Love the angle you have taken this

It takes 36 minutes for this train to reach Subway Central.

Lena Johansson: Den där strandpromenaden skulle vi ägna en stund åt. Nej, mantrat slutstation kanske inte ger den rätta inspirationen inför en ny dag...

Steffe: Not sure we're referring to the same crash but never mind. You're right about the sleepy Sunday feeling. I happen to be on vacation and every day feels just that way... ;)

Mo: Glad you like it.

Thanks all.
