I walk a lonely road

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone


Dunno, just seemed so fitting, don't you think? Sometimes, people walking through your shot can also add to it, and lonely station wouldn't seem fitting as title :D

Shot this at Duisburg central station, as the sign no doubt reveals. Went to the university library today to get some books for my practical laboratory stuff, and on my way home, the sun finally broke through the cloud cover. Of course, I whipped out the camera and shot whatever was in sight, as I just love playing around with lighting when the sun is low (who doesn't?). That's why I always carry my camera, gorillapod, and two charged batteries with me, you never know what you'll see on your way :lol:

*cheering*

GREAT combination of picture and title!

Technical note: Good use of that pole to block the sun glare.

*more cheering*

Thanks, I try to do my best :D Though I don't remember whether the sun was actually behind that pole or just above the station roof. Either way, it's not shining directly into my lens :)

Klasse Aufnahme, welch Lichtstimmung! Deswegen lohnt es sich, immer die Kamera mitzunehmen. Kompliment fürs Gelingen!

I promise you, the first thing that popped into my head when I saw this in the message centre was Boulevard Of Broken Dreams by Greenday, and sure enough, the first two paragraphs confirmed you and me were on the same wavelength... :D

Cool shot! :)

Thanks! :D

And that song is just awesome, isn't it? But I think my avatar would also give a hint as whether I came up with the title myself, or whether I "stole" it somewhere :D

Those are the same ugly canopies over the platforms at Mannheim. Blech!

Yeah, they don't really show any great design, but at least they protect you from the rain. These canopies only cover a part of the platform, the other one is covered by an old iron structure, as it can be seen on this pic: [link] The only problem is, that it's really, REALLY worn, you can actually see the space between the wooden boards that make up the roof, and if it rains, it rains inside the station as well. Once, a rather strong gust of wind swept across the station, tearing off parts of the Dachpappe [link] This station reall needs some serious renovation if you ask me...

Oh, and thanks for the fave! :lol:
