Here she comes! Sketchbook Week will return tomorrow and probably extend into next week because of this locomotive. Sorry. It’s all very easy to blame the steam locomotive when you want to play with cameras all day instead of working on what you are supposed to be working on. But the fact remains that you do not see steam locomotives every day, much less get to hear and feel them traveling at speed through the same familiar grade crossing where you sometimes have to wait for coal, hazardous liquids and new pick up trucks on your way to the grocery store.
So please enjoy these photographs of Old Seven Sixty Five. Note that I have never photographed a locomotive in motion before. (Pentax K-5iis Kilo/ Pentax 35mm f/2.8 Macro Limited)
