I was like a kid, watching the view out the front of the train. This takes me back to when I was a real kid, back in New York City, when I was upfront on the subway. This Japanese train is a lot more expansive, with the conductor openly visible and with nearly a panoramic view.
I certainly took photos out the front window, which I will showcase next. But for today’s post, I wanted a wide-angle. Luckily, I was on a train during the daytime, with only a few passengers, to document with an unobstructed view. Uncrowded trains are possible, even in Japan. Just make sure you travel during the day, when the salarymen are at work.
It takes some effort for me to frame straight and parallel, and the jostling train adds an extra element of challenge. Shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and the Olympus 14-150 travel zoom.
