    • One had a fence, but the gate was open. The other two were completely accessible.

  7. I never gave trains much thought until the universe gave to me a train obsessed child. He is going to love these! They are wonderful.

    • The railroads have been doing very well since fuel got expensive.

  9. May I ask a question, reply optional? If you are using Lightroom 5, is it possible to (easily) change, say, a white umbrella to red? I’m just an amateur, of course.

    • It might be possible, but there will probably be artifacts because accurate masking is not easy nor always possible. I have taken washed out white skies and made them blue, but that only worked because the border was easy to mask.

    There’s just something about trains … I think you know I live in SWVA, near Roanoke, which is a bigtime train town. Have you heard of O WInston Link? HIs photography of steam locomotives was amazing (well it still is; he passed on)

    • I will have to check out OWL. Is it thawing out in your part of the USA.

      • LB

        Definitely thawing! It was zero degrees when I left for work yesterday; 10 degrees today and up to 40 when I left the office.
        You’ll like the work of OWL … the museum of his work is also in Roanoke. Let me know what you think whenever you get a chance to check him out.
