Futurism Today

This was a deceptive exposure: an indoor shot, but in a building so huge the light is harsh. Note the burned-out areas in the background, while the subject is correctly exposed. These are British supertrains, Richard Branson's idea of playing with trains is to own a railway, and his locomotives are nothing if not instantly recognisable, like something out of Thunderbirds. I took this shot while waiting to board an express to London in the Manchester Picadilly centre, a truly amazing modern indoor rail exchange, around the beginning of December, 2006. The Fuji FinePix S5600 was on automatic all the way. Image by Mike.
