Reflection

One of my good friends tells me Reflections is the theme today. I'm out of the loop and didn't know about themes until today, but I'll play.

Slightly different original shot, zoomed a little closer to the reflection

The texture in the surface of the track can be seen in this shot. I was very surprised when I got the images off the camera just how smooth the reflection was in the first two images given this texture.

While shooting the moving train I was obviously preoccupied with getting the shot (and not getting squished). But in looking back at this image I couldn't help but laugh out loud. What do you think these words on the back of the railroad car mean?

DO NOT HUMP

These are original!! Nicely done. Now remember, when the track vibrates you get off! :)

Very unique reflections Mike! Very well done. Did you polish the track to get it? :) I just learned about the theme myself last week.

I live very close to the train tracks and would like to get some good close shots. The other thing is, trains are through there all the time at different times and I want to be safe. I really like #2.

Great images!!!
Humping is done in the railroad yards all the time to move the cars.
It's a railroad term, some of the terms are quite funny. This car also has a FRED on it.
