This is my response to the Dailypost Weekly Photo Challenge, Half Light. There was a time when I used to make photo montages using Photoshop from the many old photographs I have taken down the years. I had a fad of taking song titles and making a picture based on the title. Of course, when I saw this weeks challenge, I was in my element.
‘Last Train to London’ is a song from the 1970’s by The Electric Light Orchestra. I took the original photograph at Bewdley station if I remember, part of The Severn Valley Railway. I added bits and pieces to it to make it fit with the lyrics, the clock set at 9:29pm and the couple hugging each other as they say farewell.
Last Train to London:
It was 9-29,9-29 back street big city.
The sun was going’ down,there was music all around
It felt so right.
It was one of those nights,one of those nights when
you feel the world stop turnin’,you were standing
There,there was music in the air.I should have been
Away,but I knew I’d have to stay.
Last train to London,just headin’ out,
Last train to London,just leavin’ town.
But I really want tonight to last forever
I really wanna be with you.
Let the music play on down the line tonight.
Music and Lyrics by Jeff Lynne.
