    At night, I love the vivid reflections that the lights of the tube carriage cast on the windows, and the surreal double reflections that also result. I often imagine that the real world is actually on the outside (bear in mind I've usually had a few), taking over from the dreamer within after his consciousness slips slowly away. First time I've mustered courage to get the camera out and record a snapshot of the story I've imagined, mainly as almost everyone was dozing off, but fairly pleased with the result.

    I too like looking at windows on the tube and the upside world it depicts!

    Works well for and I especially like the thinking outside the box and going for something completely different!

    Good capture, really does tell a story. I would also like to be braver in photographing people in public. Being critical, seems to me like the focus is on the reflected back of the head rather than the face. Also guy's a little too much in the bottom corner (tho I assume the framing was dictated by the circumstances!).

    The focus was deliberate. I had one that was better, with the dreamer more out of focus, but the composition wasn't as good. It was only after I remembered that I had my 50mm prime, which would have got the shot a lot easier!

    Love this. Great street photography. I do dig your focus choice, too.
