Day 127 – Around the Bend

9 Aug

This is going to be a short one tonight as I am exhausted and I am still working on a project that I have to get back to. We have had some gorgeous weather around here this weekend so combine that with train tracks (which I love) and it makes for a great photo.

I have used this title before but it is so appropriate that I had to use it again. It is taking from a song my friend Thomas wrote for his album “Atomic Bar” with the Downtown Money Wasters. If you don’t own this album you should, it will spend lots of time in spinning on whatever device you use to play music. It is without question one of my top 10 albums. Check it out here.

    Thank you so much for the compliments! I’m flattered that you think so highly of that record. Thank you thank you!

    As for the photo… well, you know that I love train tracks! There’s something about watching them go off in the distance that makes me want to chase after it. I like the bend of the track in this shot. For some reason it draws my eyes to the end more than it would it the tracks were straight down the middle.

    By the way, we feature a guest post by you today. Everyone here should check it out: http://bit.ly/cTGTHU

      Thank you for the guest post, it was really fun to work with you.

      And thank you for the compliments on the photos. I love the bend in the tracks as well, I think that is why I had to stop and take the shot. It was a beautiful day.

    I love this picture (and the title) (and the CD)

    You have inspired me to drag out ATOMIC BAR again, and give it some long overdue playing time.

    Outstanding…Both the pic and Tommy’s song.

    Great perspective. And it’s been a while since I’ve listened to that CD. Might just have to pull it out and spin it…
