Smile - You're a Star !
There's a strange bridge in Paris which has always intrigued me and I've finally got a shot I'd been thinking of for quite a while.
The reason it's weird is because it looks over the many tracks coming out of Gare du Nord and notably looks down onto the Eurostar trains and drivers waiting to head off. And what's REALLY funny is that you can rather voyeristically see what Eurostar drivers do just before zooming a few hundred passengers off to London or Brussels, eating a sandwich, picking their noses or whatever.
I've often wondered what it would be like to be a driver going back and forth day after day, year after year, always traveling but never really getting any where because you always end up somewhere you've already been.
This shot fits nicely into my 'Trapped' series which I used to call 'Behind Bars' and I think the metaphor is apt here.
