The guy by the door piqued my interest, and when the train pulled to a stop at the station I took a shot of him. About the time the train speaker announced "doors closing" this young woman suddenly realized this was her stop and leapt from her seat. Watching it unfold I was able to get this shot as she bounded out the door just in time.

I can completely relate. More than once I have gotten lost in thought or, more often, focused on focused on photographing some scene when I realize I was supposed to get off at that last stop.

Loved the lean on this. Gives it a feeling that the train is leaving.

Thanks for the notes - check the size difference (aided and abetted by a teeny perspective distortion) on the two girls sitting down.

Been there, too. Like almost driving past your exit and jumping across lanes to make it... only way safer. Terrific shot, Mark.
