October CDPB Theme Photo: Lines

RANCAEKEK TRAIN STATION BANDUNG copyrights Eki Akhwan

This is my photograph for the October CDBP theme: Lines.

I took this photo at Rancaekek Railway Station. As I mentioned in my yesterday's post, Rancaekek is a small suburban town about 14 kilometers east of Bandung.

These railway lines connect Bandung to other cities east of it, such as Yogyakarta, Surakarta (in Central Java), and Surabaya (the capital city of East Java province).

In this photo, the camera is facing west towards the direction of Bandung.

By the way, today is Iedul Fitr, a major Moslem holiday. So I will probably post another photo later today, if not tomorrow, and share a story about how the holiday is celebrated here.

I see many ways of train today.

I like this photo with the rails which leave both corners of the photo

there'll be lots of railway lines viewed today methinks - this is great.

I, too, love railway line shots. I find them so powerful but graceful. You capture all that here. Thank you.

I like the hint of the sunlight colour in the distance. A very cinematic shot.

This is grand Eki. Good interpretation of the theme.

Great shot of the station and thanks for the information.
I love taking pics of railway stations and railroads too.

Mine are power transmission lines and electric cables over railways with Raghuleela Mall and International Infotech Park in the background.

Lovely shot of station and railway lines. I love the way the sunlight is just catching the edge of the station. Beautiful. Lovely choice for today.

Thanks for your comment at Sydney Daily Photo I’m not near my computer at the moment (have a visit to see where I am!), so sorry for not commenting earlier.

I did the railroad too! I like your angle of the tracks! Happy Theme Day :)

John said...

All these railway images are making me want to take a trip - trains the only way to travel.

PJ said...

Congratulations! I tried to do a railroad line photo but it didn't work. I love this. Thanks for stopping by, Eki.

We have a railroad that my Mother uses to go to New York City or Albany. She enjoys it instead of flying...
