Reflections

The story often gets better – and perhaps a little embellished – in the retelling. Our reflections on the event are often “better” than the real thing. Occasionally the reflections of an object in water, mirror, or shiny surface are as good as or even better than the real thing. In the first two images the reflections enhance the image. In the last two photos the reflection is the image. The last shot has an impressionist quality caused by the rustling leaves and the gently moving river where the camera was aimed. As always, I welcome your thoughts, critiques, and comments.

Rust

The word “rust” usually brings to mind images of corrosion, decay, and demise. All true, but in all that there is a beauty of purples, oranges, and reds that seems to catch my eye. All these images are from an old storage and loading building for train transport. Captions tell a little bit of this rusty story. As always your thoughts, critiques, and responses are invited.

Jackson Train Station

I returned to the Jackson Train Station to pick up my brother and sister-in-law. Once a busy hub, just a handful of passenger trains go through Jackson now. The train was late (as usual) so I got out my camera. The late afternoon/early evening light provided great contrast,

This still life was all set up for me. I didn’t adjust anything but my camera.

Graffiti on a wall with fence shadows and the shadowed platform both invited my attention.

This black-and-white shot was from a renovation construction area at the station.

Finally the train came and I caught this image:
