    Pittsburgh Freight Train

    After lunch on Sunday, Daryl and I went down next to the river to shoot before he hit the road for Hanover. While we were there, we heard a freight train approaching. Every pinhole photographer needs the passing train image. I turned around to capture this image. Daryl is on the other side of the tracks. I don't know what he brought back from this encounter.

    After the train passed, I installed the red 25 filter on my camera. All of a sudden, a train came from the other direction. I got caught with my wits down, and made the same exposure that I had without the filter. Here is what happens - good sky, no earth.

    I like #1 because it seems mysterious and also, I kind of like double exposures, and even though this isn't one, I like it! two thumbs up!

    This one had to be taken about the same time.
    Earl is over somewhere on the other side of the tracks!
    I was swinging the camera - panning the train. Attached files

    Good one, Daryl. I will have to try the pan technique next time the opportunity presents itself.

    Dueling trains and missed opportunities......Hey.....I hear a country song in there some where.

    The contrast between #1 and Daryls is outstanding. Two photographers, one train, two very different visions. Photography can be a very solitary endeavor and still rewarding. But add a friend, comradery and the chance to have contrasting styles and you get a lesson in how we all see differently.
