Train Spotting

Robert Law has encouraged me to do a “series”.  It’s hard for me, my mind while channeled with some things is not one to set itself to singular photographic purpose.  Being “trapped” on the Acela from the return from a few days in New York City solved that.  To pass the boredom, the thought came to shoot out of my window and this is what happened.  I am quite pleased with many of these images and I hope you enjoy them.  There are a fair amount of them, but I kept finding good ones and from satisfaction I post them for Robert in particular.

It was fun to look forward from the path of the train to seek colors and scenes that would  create interesting lines.  I put my camera on my camera bag and stabilized it from holding the lens hood against the window.  Most of the images were shot at 1/8th of a second, some a little slower some a little faster.  My Leica is not a very quick camera so it tested translating a vision into an image.  I used a 28mm Elmarit, a good lens for this set of images.   How odd. From a lark came a series of images with a common theme that I am truly proud of.
