Sepia Scenes #15 Gimme a Brake


"Gimme a Brake"
Raleigh, NC - November 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Sepia Scenes - Brought to you by Mary the Teach

There was so much rust on the running gear of this abandoned rail car that I almost didn't even have to convert the image to sepia. With the wheel almost rusted to the track, the scene was very nearly toned in sepia when I shot it -- even in full color.

OK. Consider yourself braked. Cool pic jazz man. Love the natural sepia that rusty age can give us.

Great photo! I love trains, and black & white photography, and the emotions they both conjur up.

Great choice for sepia scenes. Superb!

Robin said...

Ooh, groovy. Great closeup, it really brings out the texture.

You're on a real roll with titles this week, too. (Or should that be a real "stuck", since both these and the axel in the other one aren't rolling anywhere anymore?)

Something not we take note of every time we see a train. A splendid capture.

Great shot and subject.

that's really beautiful! isn't it amazing how much art there is out there in the world if you just look at it with an open mind - and a creative eye

I've been visiting regularly but can't always comment - for some reason the past week or so IE just doesn't like your site - so I need to launch Firefox - which I don't always have time to do since Firefox causes problems with some of work software

don't you love how computers make our lives so less complicated ;)

I love anything and everything about old trains. This speaks to my heart in so many ways.
