How to track a train?

Posted by
Magda (Vancouver, Canada) on 12 November 2008 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

The weather here has been so miserable lately that I needed to find some sunshine in my photo archives....

I'm sure the kids were convinced they would find a train at the other end of the tracks. This is really a sweet and nostalgic image of what childhood is. Great job Magda!

Like a frame from an old movie...Magic. (hope that was a dissused line though )

12 Nov 2008 3:40pm

@Jeff: Thanks for stopping by! Yes, it was safe... we have to cross the line every time we go to the beach - the only way to get there. It is a very busy place (very popular tourist place) with trains still going by... On the left I used a brush to cover up all the tourists with trees to get a nicer feel to this photo. ;)

Magda, this could be an image used for a book ... or a video of years past. As for contrast, etc., it's all in the eye of the beholder! xx
