Platform 9 3/4

The secret to getting onto platform 9 3/4 was to act confidently and get a little bit of a running start.  A lot of things in life are like that, look and act like you belong and often you will go unnoticed.    

I have followed people into conferences, receptions and parties.  Just look and act like you belong here and no one will notice.  Fake it, don't let them know you are a fraud.  Underneath the facade many people fear being found out to be a fraud, but if they fake it, they make it.  

The picture above was taken with the somewhat crappy camera in an early smart phone (a blackberry.)  I had gone for a walk about, leaving Jay watching the bags, including the bag with my better camera in it, while we waited for our train.  Not a bad image for a phone faking it as a camera.  


  1. Did you at confidently and get a bit of a running start? I wonder how many people actually try!

  2. All aboard! Hogwarts express awaits.
    I know I'd sure try.
