This man was sitting near me on the Eurostar to Paris and spent the whole journey looking out of the window.
I t was a sunny day and I managed to capture some great reflections.
PAUL GOLDSTEIN, JUDGE commented: This could have been taken at any time in the last 50 years – there is something almost timeless about this intricate study.
The train carriage is a little sleazy and the window full of condensation adding to the griminess of the reflection. but this is not the photographer’s fault. Winner by a nose.

Abandoned subway stations, such as the ‘ghost stations’ of the Paris Metro, have long been sought out by urban explorers.
The narrow-gauge Post Office Railway (aka Mail Rail), inspired by a similar freight network built by the Chicago Tunnel Company, opened in 1927 and operated between the Paddington Sorting Office and Whitechapel Eastern Delivery Office.
The railway, which served eight stations along 6.5 miles (10.5 km) of track, was closed for financial reasons in 2003 after 75 years of operation.
But as the images show, the deserted network remains in good condition today.

Rail transport in Lebanon began in the 1890s as French projects under the Ottoman empire, but largely ceased in the 1970s owing to the country’s civil war.
The last remaining routes ended for economic reasons in the 1990s. At its peak, Lebanon had about 408 kilometers of railway.
