I guess it's just the kid in me, but I still love trains and train photos. It's good to see you doing a B&W for a change!

That's a good idea for the letter „E“ and very nice black and white photo.

I like coming here to see your view. Great angle for the photo.

Leena said...

Oh, I got just now your comment :)
I want thank you for your kind comments!
And I am always wondering, how you can get photos like today`s photo. You find just a right "corner" and wow - perfect.

Moi said...

there's something about train engines that gets me nostalgic every time i spot one ...:)

Hi photosue, just wanted to say hi. Glad to see your creative spirit is still alive and well. Been off the blogging wagon for quite some time(& still happily off)--I'm so sorry for not having said hi earlier! Love the theme--makes me reminisce on a time when life was so much less complicated (and my favorite show was Sesame Street).

Still said...

Wow! this is an old star!

Steve said...

Good tones, though I wish it weren't so blown-out. Regardless, the composition is really awesome in this. Nice work.

Mike said...

This shot is superb Sue. You have captured the essence of 1880's steam. This was a day when the locomotives ran each day as polished as they were new. The engineer basically owned the engine and it was an extension of him. He oiled, polished and oversaw its' maintenance. Your picture in black and white has captured that feeling well. Thanks.

Annie said...

Eeegads, your train photo is wonderful.

Kate said...

Very good tones in this photo, and the subject is obviously a favorite among many people.

Lavenderlady said...

I have such fond memories of this place. I do appreciate your sharing these photos.

Zsolt said...

JAM said...

Really nice shot there. In close, and full of interesting detail. Love the shiny bits too.
