The Tube

While entering a subway station in London I noticed many people dashing around a corner in a hurry. I decided to skip a couple of trains, trying to capture this movement instead. I opened the aperture to f/2, set the shutter speed to 1/8, and took a shot whenever someone passed by who was particularly fast.

In spite of the slow shutter speed, I managed to get a couple of photos where the background was as sharp as it would have been with 1/125. This ain't one of them, but still I think it's the best of the series. And it eventually ended up in the BMW spread.

March 27, 1996, Leica M4-P with 35mm Summicron, Tri-X.
