Here’s a shot I took at the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis. Also, this is the part of the show where I should probably pen something all dark and brooding… if only I had ‘the writing skills’…
Napoleon Dynamite: “…I don’t even have any good skills.”
Pedro Sanchez: “What do you mean?”
Napoleon Dynamite: “You know, like… nunchuck skills… bow-hunting skills… computer-hacking skills…”

Awesomeness, as always 🙂
Thank you very much, RNP!
It’s a really cool shot and that’s that.
Train stuff is inherently cool.
It’s pretty hard to screw it up too badly.
Yes, very! More train stuff, more train stuff!
I might just have a few more up my sleeves, Binky…
I’ll try post a few from time to time…
Great shot. My eye keeps going to those lines of rivets and it reminds me of the time I saw the earlier space pods at Kennedy Space Centre. I couldn’t get over how they too seemed to be held together with rivets. They looked like something from a child’s Mechano set. (Sorry, that has virtually nothing to do with anything here really but that’s where the rivets sent me today)! 😀
Seems very appropriate to me – and thank you, Jayne!
If I ever get the time and space one of my intended future project is to build a large frame, rivet some aluminum to it, and then paint some WWII era aircraft nose art on it. I love the ‘look’ of riveted metal and all the history / mechanization ‘stuff’…
I love it – great textures
Thank you very much, N.M.! I thought it was a wonderful exhibit!
!Muchas Gracias, Senior!
I see PA…where is MA?
I think she was ‘out back’ at the time…
Forget Pedro, Vote Spilled Ink Guy, gosh! 🙂
Ha! I wish!
After my skit I looked like a friggin’ IDIOT, geez!
Thank you very much, Eden!
Really, really beautiful. I think it’s the angle that does it for me.
Thank you so much, U.M.!
If I’ve got a camera I won’t be able to resist the temptation to roll around on the ground with it… that’s half the fun, you know! 🙂
what a great shot. keep up the good work.
Thanks so much, D.F.!
I think I got a bit lucky with this one! 🙂
Of all the railcars in all the towns in all the world, you have to photograph this one. Great noir shot, it is the stuff that dreams are made of.
Thank you so much, sir!
I had a feeling that if I didn’t photograph this railcar I’d regret it. maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon… and for the rest of my life…
Very nice shot of an old rail car. Nice lighting too!
Thank you very much, sir! Wish I could take credit for that, but I really lucked out on this one… it was already all set-up and ready to go! 🙂
WOW!!! Do you realise you’ve captured an extremely rare sight??? A railcar with NO graffiti… Unbelievable. It must’ve been locked away in an underground bunker for the last 100 years.
Hahaha… now that you mention it… yeah, that is pretty rare, isn’t it?! It must be because these were fenced in on museum property… still, I’m surprised too. There were other cars with broken glass, etc. but it really looked to be more from wear than vandalism. 🙂
Fantastic color. Almost makes it look other-worldly.
Thanks so much, Jason!
Fortunately that is very easy to add (otherwise this might have wound up being straight black and white… I did think the hint of tone added to this one, though)! 🙂
Beautiful tones, SIG
Thank you so much, S.E. – that’s very kind of you! 🙂
Great picture! BTW, writing skills are passe. Today, it’s definitely about honing in on those nunchuck skills. 🙂
Thank you very much, S.D.D…
well, I did watch a lot of Ninja Turtles when I was a kid… maybe that will help me out a bit!?
very film noir!
I thought it had that sort-o-feel about it…
Brotha, you got mad skills!!! And love the pic, too, BTW.
And you are wicked kind, sir! Thank you very, very much!
Love this photo. I know I say this about all of them, but I LOVE THIS PHOTO!!!!
Thank you very much for your kindness, Dishy!
I’m just happy I’ve
connedconvinced you to put up with this stuff!
It’s awesome! Feels from another era for sure.
Thank you very much, Annabelle!
It was a pretty cool place, wasn’t it?!
Hopefully we’ll be able to go back some time…
