I love macro.
I heard a train and went to take a picture of it as it came by me. I had to pass it and go a few miles ahead. It was only doing 15 or 20 mph when I passed it, but I think it sped up. I had found my spot and was walking down the tracks on one side and decided to cross the tracks for a better picture when I heard it coming around the bend. Now, if it had been going at the leisurely pace I had last seen it going, I would have been fine. As it was I crossed the 15 or 20 feet to the other side at a slower pace than I would have if I had realized just exactly how fast he was going. It did explain his horn a blaring. I turned the camera on before I had even turned and brought it up in time for this photo...so much for composition. I think he was doing 45 or 50mph when he went by me.
I had time for this one...about a second later.
It was a long train, though, so i took a few of these. it was about 8 to 10 feet away.
and there it goes.
On the other side of the tracks was this...pretty, huh?
It wasn't a bad way to spend the time between me getting off work and Cora getting off work...I enjoyed it.
