‘Station To Station’
Auckland’s Britomart Train Station is relatively new and has a sorta alien spaceship, futuristic feel going on.
All the more reason to crib the title of David Bowie’s 1976 song and album as a small homage to that great musical voyager.
His music took me to a few unknown places in my youth.

Barcelona Estacio de Franco October 2019
Numbered platforms, nameless people.
Coming and going as they please, or as they must.
For every departure, an arrival.
From a short distance I observe those on the platforms coming and going.
I am a stranger here, but am a fellow journey maker, so there is a momentary affinity of sorts.
Even the sweeping ironwork of the grand station roof speaks of the lines and curves of travel.
There is wonderment in such a place, but always anticipation of the next destination.
For we must keep moving…
