The closest I have ever come to train spotting happened in this station (the Gare du Midi in Brussels). I took a couple of photos of the Eurostar, but at least it confirmed to me that train spotting was not going to be a hobby I could ever enjoy. It is quite a nice station I suppose, although I am not an authority on this. Whilst waiting for freinds to arrive I peered over the gantry and saw this solitary figure heading out into the throng of downtown Brussels.
A little while ago the Chinese State Circus came to Folkestone, but rather than pay the entrance fee and potentially see some sort of Chinese clown (all clowns are bad), I thought it more prudent to wait until everyone had gone home and take a photo of the big top. The sky was cloudy that night but there was a breeze and the clouds were moving really quickly. I tried a 30 second exposure and this was the result.
