"So that, when coming out of a dark tunnel, you can dilate their pupils and they won't see what you're trying to warn them about?
As I think about what was probably going on during the scene, especially how fast those trains pull in, I'm surprised anyone thought to do anything."
My friend...read what you just wrote, especially the part in bold.
Occam's Razor...the photog thought to do what he was trained to do...take pictures.
I don't want to hear some soccer excuse about how he not only had time to think "I'll warn the train driver with my flash! Yeah!" but also "Better not blind him with it while I'm doing it!" as the train bears down on the poor fellow.
Combine that with the perfectly framed pictures and it's obvious what happened.
Next thing you know all the people who had their phones out will claim they were trying to text the train operator to Stop! but they couldn't find the exclamation mark on their phone.
