At the entrance of St Pancras, one of the most dauntingly beautiful train stations I’ve ever seen, these two statues commemorate a scene that has happened, with different leading characters, countless times all over the world and ages. Whether the kissers are about to depart away from each other, or they just reunited after a long time away, that is for you to decide…
The sculpture is “The meeting place”, created by Paul Day in 2007.
Train stations are always fun to shoot, even if sometimes the security guys can get kind of annoying. This picture is from St Pancras train station, London’s international train station where one can take the Eurostar train for a quick link with Paris or Brussels.
The whole space is getting revamped now in preparation for the Olympics, but the few spots free of scaffoldings and works in progress are still nice to look at!
The picture is a three exposures (handheld) hdr. The sky behing the glass ceiling looks kind of boring but in this case this is not due to blown highlights, but simply to the usual London cloudy thing.
