Out On The Road


My WordPress buddy Tim Allen said that he hoped this worked out for me. Me too. But, what he doesn’t realize is that this better work out for me because if it doesn’t he’ll have nothing but problems since WordPress is changing everything. One helper told me that since technology has changed over the yearsContinue reading “Out On The Road”

Albuquerque


A ll aboard. I love trains. I started riding them when I was about five years old. We would travel from Los Angeles to New York on Santa Fe’s El Capitan and we changed trains for one of the New Central System trains and eventually for a Penn Central train when the former competitors merged.Continue reading “Albuquerque”

Rolling


A nother experiment and another morning nap. There’s a reason for both. It’s my nature to experiment even when the picture gets a little bleak. The other is something that makes me nervous. You know about my back and hip problems. I’ve been feeling good for a while. Yesterday I seemed to collapse. Everything wentContinue reading “Rolling”

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 wasContinue reading “Another Day, Another Mistake”

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 wereContinue reading “Naked To The Eye”

It’s Not The Same


It’s not the same. It looks the same. But, it’s not. I know because I made the picture after I published all the train pictures on Sunday. Let me tell you. I didn’t make the picture because of the engine, although the bright red helped… a lot. I made the picture because of the wonderfulContinue reading “It’s Not The Same”

9:20 Special


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 thisContinue reading “9:20 Special”

One Moonlit Night


The night sky. It was early. The all seeing dog wanted to go out. She kept nagging me until I took her for a short walk. I did what she demanded. It was a good thing. Because. Look what I found. What a night. What a sky. What a moon. And, two long haul trainContinue reading “One Moonlit Night”

It’s All Too Sureal


Surreal? That’s probably the least of things around here. It really comes down to people, who as Jerry Seinfeld once said, are the worst. Even though all St. Patrick’s Day parades were cancelled. And, even though the governor put a limitation on crowd sizes, some people just had to gather on Magazine and Bourbon StreetsContinue reading “It’s All Too Sureal”
