Having grown up in A Railroad Town, having worked for the railroad for a few years, having two brothers who worked for the railroad for a combined 60+ years (!), it's hard to get the love of
trains out of your system. I do love trains and everything about them.
Here, we see a "CSX / Norfolk Southern" pair of engines, pulling about 60 empty auto carriers as they head eastward towards the Port of New Jersey / New York to likely pick up more automobiles. I edited this a bit in Nik Snapseed to bring out some detail....I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"
- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.
::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"; Earth Wind and Fire
