Yeah, but he's younger than me.

Yes, Kent's story was some yummy icing on the cake.

Here's a very recent shot of my blue hair.

You mean you are a blue hair too?

Some of them are exceedingly crotchety for their age I guess.

I've gotten behind on my reading "over there," sounds like I need to go catch up! Been missing the good stuff.

It's all good. Sometimes I say things in joking that people take too seriously too. And for good measure too. At times I don't know when to tone it down.

People say I'm arrogant... Well, a person...

How about this one? I have not submitted it yet. I am concerned about the signal base in the way. I was going to crop it out. I also cannot do anything about the poles. But I think it's a worthwhile shot.



I have not done any post to it at all yet except a little cropping.

I fear the post is problematic. Also, the additional area on the right to capture the full trolly track still causes an empty feelling.

I know getting a heritage there again may not be possible, but to just restage the photo in general, can you get further to the right so that you can let the train come a few more feet forward while still seeing the trolley?

Not without standing in the ROW. There is a chain link fence just to the right of the ROW, which I cropped out, it really precludes being in a better spot without blatantly standing in the ROW or on the rail.

Plus, getting that unit here again, and a trolley in place at the same time? Chances low. Although the 156 has come this way 3 times in the last 2 weeks.

I'd love to give you my opinion, but I don't want to ruin your vigor with my arrogance.

It's a vivid photo that's tack sharp, and interesting to the eye. Then there's the post / pole. What if you went in really tight like this?

A shot there is like bowling with a blindfold on, So hard to pick what works as everything is moving. Shoot wide and crop and I would go with Loyd's or start there.

I like leaving the cloud formations, I dont want to take too much off. If you look at the first one you can see how much I have already taken off. There is even more on the original frame I cropped from. Nothing really of value.

You're really trying to tell a very short story here. It's not about the clouds or the shrubs or whatever else. It's about the train and the low clearance that the truck has to endure/trust at full speed in a suburban landscape. And of course, retain any other documentary info in the shot, like the unit # on the trailing unit. If it's important to the shot keep it, if not get rid of it.
