  • Old Stories

    When I was very young, a boy, my parents thought it was a good idea for some of us to spend the summer in Brooklyn. We traded a balmy summer in Long Beach where The Pacific Ocean was just a few miles away for the hot and humid streets of South Brooklyn. We always took […]

  • Another Day, Another Mistake

    W hen I was a young child my family used to travel from Long Beach, California to Brooklyn, New York. In those days we either took Santa Fe’s El Capitain or Super Chief. Those were the days. The food was great. The cars were luxurious. The staff was helpful and friendly. Though the ride was […]

  • Naked To The Eye

    Sometimes, there’s no winning. I couldn’t do it yesterday so I shut the conversation down. I couldn’t get through. Everything was an excuse. Or, a weird kind of arrogance. I have no use for that. Oh well. Another war lost. One I shouldn’t have fought. These two pictures are of the same location. They were […]

  • What Does It Mean To Travel

    On a Sunday morning. I realized I haven’t published multiple pictures in some time. I’ve been photographing bits and piece of trains forever because I like them. I grew up riding the Super Chief and the El Capitan and eventually The City of Los Angeles from Los Angeles to New York City via Chicago. Of […]

    A bunch of tests. I’m always trying to learn something, anything, from the WordPress block system. Let’s see how you like the lead column to be smaller than the technical column. This is a good day to do it because of the subject matter, graffiti on an old train car. From my limited knowledge this […]

  • One Moonlit Night

  • The Runner

    And, the chaser… I was concentrating on my work when I felt two paws on my leg. Time for a walk. Once again, she came through. I wouldn’t have seen the most beautiful golden light that we usually have after a storm. if we hadn’t gone out. I did the best that I could, not […]

  • Summer Morning

    Does it? Or, doesn’t it? If the picture says hot, or early morning heat, then I made another summer project picture.  If it doesn’t, that’s okay. I made a picture that I like. A lot. By accident. My pal on the internet scene, Montana Rose, posted a picture yesterday that she said she made by […]

  • Rust

    Rust never sleeps. That’s what Neil Young said. He’s right. Even though I use the word “abandoned” in my tags, these old trains really aren’t. The are owned by the Louisiana railroad historical society, or whatever they are called. They are a small group. The don’t return phone calls or emails. They work on their […]
