Friday's Foto!

"The Engineer!"

When I was much younger, like 40 years ago, more or less, and yes, there were diesel locomotives back then, I would sit on the porch of my grandmother's house and watch the trains go by.

Most locomotive engineers would wave at my brother and I as they passed the house and saw us watching.  To me, that was awesome.

I took this photo of a CSX train going through Marmet, WV, a few summers ago near the spot where I would sit as a child and watch the Baltimore and Ohio or the Chesapeake and Ohio or the Chessie System trains roar through town.

Timeless Thursday! Red

"Red!"
(C) Allen Pearson, All Rights Reserved
Quite often on a rainy overcast or foggy day I hear the comment "Too bad the weather isn't cooperating so you can photograph!"  Or, "photographing on a cloudy, rainy or foggy day is a waste of time."

Nothing could be further from the truth.  While you must make appropriate preparations for your camera equipment on rainy or foggy days, overcast conditions are perfect for bringing out the colors in nature.  Covering your camera with a plastic grocery bag or a bag you can purchase at the local camera shop is an excellent way to enjoy the adventure.

"Red" has remained one of my favorite images as it was created on a foggy day at Walney Pond.  The fog pulled out the red colors and the dark of the bark in the trees.
