Small Town Train Stop

When I first saw this photo opportunity I was thinking it would be a good candidate for a black & white.  However, when I saw it on my computer screen it didn't do much for me.  So I thought to create more interest and to emphasize the freight train which really was the main subject of the photo, I would add back in the color of the train only.  For me it makes the photo work.  What do you think?

More Old Trucks

It seems like old vehicles that have seen better days make for great photo subjects.  I've included a few more in this post that I took up in the Palouse country of Washington.  Something about the old chipped paint and rust that makes you wonder what stories the truck could tell you if it could talk.

Coffee and Cars

Ford Cobra
I went over to a weekly car gathering in Irvine this morning called Coffee and Cars.  It is a place where you can see a lot of car enthusiasts showing off there hot rods, muscle cars, classic cars, etc.  It makes for a great opportunity for photographing some fabulous cars.

Gig Harbor Sloop

Just got back from visiting some good friends up in Gig Harbor, Washington.  On our last day up there we were having lunch at the harbor when this beautiful sloop comes tooling by.  I had my new Nikon point and shoot with me and had to grab a shot.  By the way, in case you couldn't tell by my photo above, Gig Harbor is a gorgeous place to visit.
