Hello and welcome to Weekend Reflections! This is a wonderful reflection. He seems to be staring very intently at something while his reflection stares back at him.
It just so happens that my wife's parents left Manchester by train yesterday headed for Oxford.

Thanks for taking part in Weekened Reflections.
Have a great weekend!

@James: The Oxford train would have sped through Levenshulme with first stop at Stockport.

I really like the look on his face, made even better by the reflection.

Wonderful reflection!
I was also thinking along the same lines as James - I wondered what thoughts must be going through his mind.

@Carletta: Sometimes I can read his mind and sometimes I can't - he loves riding on trains and buses and likes watching airplanes but not flying.

My first portrait reflection, natural pose, beautiful image.

@Vogon Poet: ah but it wasn't "posed" - I was trying to photograph the station so in the first instance the photo was a failure due to the presence of the reflection - but serendipity often steps in and turns a failure in one context into a success in another.
