Sepia Scenes #29: Northward Bound


"Out of Town on a Rail"
Raleigh, NC - December 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Sepia Scenes - Brought to you by Mary the Teach

I think I've featured this shot in black and white before either here or on but I liked the effect in sepia as well. The building you see in background has also been featured here, albeit in a much closer and tighter shot. It was my first offering for David McMahon's theme The Doors over at .Violence UnSilenced

Good morning Jazz. Nice picture. I like the way the fence takes a turn, then the RR track curve around a bend, followed above it by (what is that to the left?) as it flows into a roadcrossing over going in the opposite direction. There is a lot going on here.

I like this sort of pictures, unsure if the train would be heading up or heading down. Where ever it'll be heading too... a safe train seems more important.
I prefer the sepia tone to this instead of the B&W. A washed out feel...

I like this one for the air of expectation. I think if I look at it long enough, I will get to see the train and hear the whistle. Of course, it will be an old steam locomotive belching smoke and have the conductor on the caboose waving to me!

The picture shows two ways of viewing things: We can be going to town, or riding away. The possibilities beyond the horizon shape our views...

I think railroad tracks always look great in sepia! This is a great photo

This reminds me of a shot from perhaps the 40's where someone is waiting for their loved one to come in on the train.

Nice touch with the fence up front. This really does look good in sepia.

I like the feel of this picture. There's a story waiting to be told.

Ria said...

Its a great capture! I'm sure it looked good too both in black and white, as well as in color. Sometimes there are photos that are just fabulous no matter what color/treatment they get!

This scene looks so tranquil! Railroads and sepia are a perfect match.
