India: Haridwar Train Station

There’s nowhere in the world that can compare to an Indian train station. Most train stations throughout the world – Western and Japanese anyway – are for the most part sterile places that have serve one function. But every Indian trains station that I have ever been to has it’s own unique character.

I caught the train back to Delhi yesterday and got to Haridwar station late afternoon so that I could shoot for an hour or two before my train arrived. Here are a few photos.

I only wish there was a train on the platform when I took this

Cycled since I was a kid, moved to Japan in 2001, bought my first 'serious' camera in 2005. Spent the later half of the 1990s travelling in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Nepal, Japan, and the Philippines and wish I'd photographed a lot more back then.

    • Thanks for the nice comment Karl.

      I was running around the station with my camera in one hand, my clothes back in my other hand, and my camera gear on my back. I’m happy I got anything at all 🙂
