On waiting at the bottom of the garden

"A voodle is visible images which conceal nothing... they evoke mystery and indeed when one sees one of the voodles, one asks oneself this simple question 'What does that mean'? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable. The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown. Only thought can resemble. It resembles by being what it sees, hears, or knows; it becomes what the world offers it."

As life obliges one to do something, Sam Renseiw continues voodling with this year's first montage of a travelling situation.

"Among modes of land transport, the elongated compartments of trains most closely approximate architectural space. ...trains possess a variety of discrete rooms -viewing cars, dining cars, club cars, sleeping quarters, [toilets - ed.], the outdoor ledges between cars - and passageways that resemble streets. A single train can carry hundreds of people. [...] Seeing the world from a train is like seeing it from a moving village." - 'Zoomscape', Mitchell Schwarzer

I'm a sucker for train window films. Always interesting to see what people do with them in montage. Like the fading in and out as if reflected in the glass - that moment on a train when you're staring out the window and you suddenly or slowly pull focus to the inside of the carriage.

Beautiful, Sam.

Like Rupert, I'm a sucker for these views too. Anything really from moving vehicles has my attention.

At one stage I thought you were on a plane, when the hostess was demonstrating the inflatable life belt. But perhaps the train passed over or under water?
