Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/640s, f/4.0, ISO 160, focal length 4.5; AUTO setting

This is the side of the old locomotive called the “Three Spot” located in Levy County, Florida, USA. I was drawn to all the “dots” (rivets) as well as the peeling paint and rust marks, including the tiny heart inside the “O”.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
