One way ticket


This photo did not go through any filters or special effects. Well, not yet anyway.

I was at the old railway tracks two weeks ago and while walking under the bridge, I thought it was a picture perfect moment.

The sunlight was hitting the rusty tracks at the right angle. The shadows provided the vinaigrette effect that iPhone photo apps like. The tufts of greenery sprouting in between had a calming effect. In that second, I had seen beauty in both manmade object and nature.

One of my favourite moments from hiking at a soon-to-be forgotten closed train station.

I have a few questions though. Where do all the sharp pebbles come from and why do the railway need so many of them? They are such a painful bitch to walk on.
