I live near a rail town museum, a place that is all about trains and, in particular, steam trains from "back in the day." I photograph there on occasion as a volunteer photographer so I have open access to the buildings and events. On June 1 there was a steam train event for Engine 28, an engine that has been restored over the last couple of years. "She" came out for her christening and the public got to ride behind her throughout the day. People seem to love these old trains but I have yet to come to that. I am not a train buff, but I do see it as an opportunity to take photographs. Oddly, each time I actually do get there and take the photos I love the resulting images. Trains are a nice subject to photograph. Of course, I call this "The Christening."
I am a photographer, it is my passion, my avocation, and almost everything I do revolves around it.
