Lovely composed picture.
This is perfect in black and white.

Carmi said...

Damn, that's powerful. John nailed it: incredible composition, and one that absolutely needs to be monochrome.

Nothing suggests massiveness like anything related to rail travel.

Beautiful shot - well composed and the B&W was an excellent choice.

Lori said...

Great shot...I love the black and white theme. Happy WW:)

Alvis said...

I love it. The black and white really works for this one.

I love your post's title. It's also the title of one of the songs of my favorite band. :D

And the photo? Incredibly amazing. And I agree, the monochrome thing worked in giving the photo more impact.

I can hear the long squeal of the train brakes, as I used to live beside railway lines once upon a time. Love the black and white shot.

Great picture and perfect title! Do you shoot in black and white or alter later on computer? I also love the walnut tree photo and "better days".

A rusty old monster that has infinitely more elegance in its decaying state than its new replacements in all their sleek design. :)

I love pics of old mechanical equipment, especially in b/w or sepia. This picture could also serve in Carmi's meme - busted.
Happy wordless wednesday.
