Like every day, I took the local train from Bandra to Malad at 7:30 am. I prefer traveling by Mumbai Local Trains only early in the morning or late in the evening. During the peak hours one may find it difficult to find space even in the First Class compartments. Since there wasn’t much rush, the otherwise occupied door space of the train was empty. I generally take a seat throughout my journey but yesterday, I decided to try and take some pictures from the moving train, using my recently bought Samsung Corby Pro mobile phone camera.
Like all the mobile phone cameras, even this one has a slow shutter and this delayed shutter causes the moving objects to either get blurred or skewed. Some times this disadvantage really makes the photographs look amazing. Here’s one example of the motion blur that I captured using Samsung Corby Pro mobile phone camera.
I’ve always found it amazing how a mobile phone camera can let you do some cool photography. Between Santacruz and Ville Parle stations a red signal caused the train to take a halt for about 2 minutes. On the parallel parking track, there was this train which was put to rest for some reason. You can notice how people do the most risky act like standing at the door of the speeding train. They do it knowingly and they do it every day. For once even I did that to take the above pictures but, my advice to the fellow Mumbaiites would be to stay inside the compartment and not to travel standing at the door of the train. It’s Risky!!
