16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Gatekeeper at a railroad crossing

Train trips had always something fascinating to me. Mostly you are being trapped in a metal vehicle and your only escape is the window. Naturally I am spending hours observing the landscapes, nature, rural and urban areas which pass by. This time I was on my way from Bangkok to Chiang MaiI when I did this shot. The gatekeeper's positioning and moves seemed well reherased and ready for hist duty.
