that tape barrier looks insignificant and ill suited here on the platform, Bill.
Bill Phillips: More a visual reminder than an effective barrier. Most people were sensible I think

This is wonderful, Bill...I almost feel I am in the expectant crowd.
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Ray
Mais que se passe-t-il donc ?
Bill Phillips: The famous steam locomotive Flying Scotsman is arriving. We get very excited about steam locomotives in the UK smile

I would have done exactly the same as you. The locomotive is magnificent, but who wants to see yet another picture of Flying Scotsman..?
Bill Phillips: Well you might have to tomorrow

All they want is the snap. Surely the visual looking ,the noise of steam, of pistons turning, the clank of a slowing train , the smell of smoke and oil , the heat , the closeness, the vibrations, the engine team in control ...all are part of the experience. But no, just a simple snap to say I was there, probably never looked at very much after the event.
Yours is a great image of the way life is experienced these days..
Bill Phillips: There is much in what you say Richard.

Richard Trim makes a valid point. So much of the experience is lost when looking through a viewfinder (and phone screen as seems to be the majority here).
Bill Phillips: Indeed so Alan.

Is it Lady Godiva.
Bill Phillips: That was Coventry
The queen?
Bill Phillips: Much more important as you will see tomorrow
The young 'uns are probably wondering what all the fuss is about!
Bill Phillips: They were probably ll brought up on Thomas the tank Engine Tom

I think the ones without the cameras have the best idea - they will actually SEE it!
Bill Phillips: You have a point Anne!
I've got to admit that Alan is right, it's not the same seeing something like this, or even the shots I've taken at Motorcycle meetings for instance, through a viewfinder rather than for real! At least you got a very enjoyable candid from your viewpoint.
Bill Phillips: Yes there is a lot in it. Mind you you can do both!

Great shot? The Queen?
Bill Phillips: Much more important as you will see tomorrow grin
good candid shot Bill... it's supersizing how many iPhone owners have become the photographers in such a short time....petersmile
Bill Phillips: It is amazing what good pictures people get on phone cameras.
