If you didn't like yesterday's shot, then I suspect you may not be too keen on this one either, but blur, motion and reasonably long exposures are something I'm quite interested in at the moment. One problem, at least from your point of view, is that I think the thing that makes this type of shot most interesting is the detail – the various ways in which things overlap themselves, the opacity of a figure against the ground, and so on. And more often than not the detail that fascinates me most is the small-scale detail, a lot of which is lost when presented at this resolution. Anyway, I guess that you could argue that I should refrain from posting them, if that's the case, but chromasia is a much a diary as anything else so here it is.

As always, let me know what you think.

Oh, and the title refers to the train's destination, which is only really noteworthy because this yellow train, as best I can tell, only seems to go to Wigan.
