Day 73 – Around the Bend

17 Jun

I don’t have much of a story behind this shot other than I love train tracks, I think it is because they remind me of traveling which is my favorite thing to do. The shot I took came out rather dull and a tad blurry so I decided to up the contrast and convert it to black and white. I rather like the results since my first reaction was to toss the photo all together.

    Yikes, there’s something about this picture that just draws you in. And it has the depth perception going on (like the alleyway one) where you could just step in and walk on down the tracks.

    One of my favs so far! The picture goes on for days and days! I love train tracks but sometimes I don’t the photographer always captures them in the best way – they need to come and see you because this photo is spot on!!

    I agree that using black and white can sometimes hide the imperfections of a slightly blurry shot. You did a good job πŸ™‚ Excellent pic!
