    Great shot! I, too, am drawn to trains. Never photographed them but love the ride. Even still, I miss the accessibility of this form of transportation which existed when I was a kid. You could go just about anywhere.

  • Ummmm…. They are packaged magic.

    Great work, Ted!

  • Thanks Cora. It’s as if someone metaled-over a mighty muscle to make this guy. You can sense the way its strength seems to shudder beneath that cowling, huh?

    Oh this is slick Ted…love how the stunnings colours of the sky are reflected in the metal..just such a magic balance…and I’m not a big fan of trains;)

  • Fan or not of trains… I betcha when you have a camera in hand and one appears close up… you feel the TWANG!!!! Wonder why that is? Thanks for the nice thoughts.
