Onophotopoeia

Some times even the most mundane of scenes, the most commonplace of faces or the most trivial of objects prove to be a cradle of beauty...unleashing new meanings when looked at again and again. The true magic of photography lies in the fact that we can capture the fleeting moments to revisit them...to listen to the music that the image resounds... Onophotopoeia...

Wheels of time...


This shot was taken at the Central Terminal, Buffalo. Once a bustling and magnificient rail station that echoed the grandeur of the Grand Central Terminal, New York City, this sprawling piece of architecture has decayed to death. The Central Terminal was commissioned into service in 1929 ans served the Buffalo region for 50 years till the last train chugged out in October 1979. Since then, the wheel of time has come to a standstill. Sold to private owners, the grand station was gradually stripped of its ornate interiors. A few weeping windows, rusted wagons and the vast expanse of the main concourse remain to tell the story of its halcyon times.

This photograph epitomises the state of affairs at the Central Terminal. There will be more to follow in some later posts.
