That field or any on that side of the tracks. As the guy put it to me while we were waiting, cross the tracks and your trespassing on either the property he leases or on railroad property.

Not a fan of this shot or his work in general. How something like this gets accepted here used to be a mystery to me.

I've been stuck on 157 photos in the database and it's been a struggle getting past it for some reason. I think a timeout on my part is in order.

I think if done right, flash photography at night can be a nice alternative. To me it’s relatively new. I’ve managed to get a stationary train at night using a couple external strobes. I never had...

Looks like it's leaning to the left. If you're using Photoshop, I'd put a grid over the photo and rotate it clockwise until it was level with the taller building toward the middle.
