Day twenty-four of our photo journey …
It was an absolutely perfect day for scenic photos, but instead I found myself drawn to shapes and shadows all around me.
Okay, I realize that my fascination with the shadows falling across the corner of this platform could probably be a case study for a local psychologist, but I just had to take this picture.
I have walked by the old train station about a billion times (well, maybe only a few hundred times) but as I looked back at the platform through my viewfinder, my mind saw this scene as it might have been 100 years ago. I could literally feel the history of it.
I could have been taking some gorgeous scenic shots, but every color, every angle, and every shadow kept showing up in my lens.
I knew I was off the deep end though when even the contrast of the Do Not Enter sign caught my attention, so I decided I might as well take the picture and figure it all out later.
Maybe it is all the days of 100+ temperatures that has done something to my brain. Or, maybe I need to take a geometry class to get past this obsession with shapes.
When I caught myself taking a picture of the clamps and bolts at the bottom of the old train station signal though, I knew it was time to call it a day. Either that or I was in serious need of some coffee. 🙂
Maybe next time I will even take a picture of the caboose. Well, if I don’t get hung up looking at the old tracks that is.
