A new photo from the Powerhouse Museum every day
This image was selected as one of the highly commended images for our Trainspotting 2011 photography competition/exhibition. This was photographed by Tyrone Kallmeier (Flickr name tyrkall) with the caption ‘Sydney’s NSW police are a regular presence on CityRail trains’. We asked Tyrone what inspired him to take this photograph and he responded:
This picture was inspired because of the contrast between the gritty graffiti covered train doors and the authority of the law, the police just seemed to blend in like they were riding shotgun on the train.
We showed this image in the Museum for the exhibition in 2011. Our Trainspotting 2012 competition is now open and if you would like a chance to win one many prizes then you can simply put your entry into our Flickr group and tag it with the category that you are entering into. You can submit three entries per category and if selected as a winner or highly commended then you will feature in our exhibition that we will be having in the Museum later on in the year.
It has just been announced that this image has taken out the People’s Choice Award for our Trainspotting 2011 exhibition. Congratulations to Tyrone.
