The Trainspotter

The Trainspotter

I haven't shot any portraits for a while, so when I saw this guy in Handen the other day, I stopped to ask what he was up to, as it's always fun to talk to fellow photographers. This is Benjamin. He is from Karlsruhe, Germany. He is a serious trainspotter and was waiting for a freight train to arrive from Jordbro. Benjamin is in Sweden for one year as a student at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Attending the Modern Physics Master’s Programme. During his stay here he lives in a student apartment at Lappkärrsberget. And on his free time he shoots freight trains. So I joined the fun! Here is my shot of the Green Cargo locomotive. And if you want to see Benjamins photos, they are here.

Yes, lovely portrait- and some serious camera equipment he's sporting!
