One other thing: I scrambled up to the top of that bridge abutment in 1983 to shoot S&A Pacific 750 (and two green Southern FP7s) on a steam special. The shot turned out great---but someone had painted---in large white lettering---the old familiar suggestion ("F.... You") on the opposite abutment. The lettering was really large too, so there was no way of missing it. Of course this was a 35mm slide, so in the days before Photoshop, there was nothing you could do. I filed it away somewhere, but I really should find it, scan it, clean it up and post it on Except for that little flaw, it's a nice shot. And then again---it might be good the way it is.
