I've never seen anything quite like this before. I like the lighting here. There are those ominous grey clouds hovering just overhead. ...


Well, it's unique, that's for sure. I like the way the light bulb works against that pure black background. I also like the detail of t...

I have been thinking recently (over the past several weeks) that what I do isn't really ART in the strictest sense of the word. Not really. What I do lends itself more to me taking pictures of ART and posting them up for all to see and avail themselves of (if they are so inclined). But it's not ART.

I have had the very fortuitous opportunity to meet some true artists since being on DA and I can see by comparison that what I do isn't ART. What they do is. Taking nothing and making something - painting, drawing, etc. That's ART - to me. Or seeing something in nature and being able to capture it in a very unique and interesting way on film (so to speak) and bringing it out for all to see and appreciate. Not all of us can do that; me being one of them. I make the attempt, but let's face it, I don't even rank up there with the ones who can and do do it.

But, with my Train Art or my In the Neighborhood shots, I feel that I can take what someone else does and say to the DA community "Hey look at this! This is cool!" At least that is what I try to do.

Train Art is just that. Someone else put that art on the train. They deserve the credit. I wish I could credit them, whoever they are. But because trains are what they are and not everyone gets to see this stuff, I feel that bringing it to DA and putting it up, shines a light on something that stands as ART, but doesn't get the attention that it should (to me).

So, all you DAer's out there, when I thank you for a fav, it comes from the heart. It isn't taken lightly. I do feel grateful that someone likes something I posted.

Depending on what BNSF (train company) decides to do will determine what I can or can't do. Right now, there are coal cars coming and going all the time, very little art comes through and most of that doesn't stop and if it does, it's at night. So when I can catch some train art, I will and keep on posting.

Just a notation though, winter is getting ready to set in here in Wyoming and it ain't pretty when it does. 6-7 months minimum of snow. So, there is that to be faced here in the next few weeks.
