This is one of my favorite photos. Yes, I have lots of favorites, but this came as a surprise. We had to take a detour to get home from church. It was a cool, overcast fall day. I really didn’t feel like stopping for a train, but there it was.
Sometimes a great scene presents itself ... it’s like the universe is trying to share, if you will open your eyes, see it, and capture the moment. There are times when all you can do it take it in, but often the view calls out to be shared with the world. This was one such occasion. I printed this one, and shared it with a special friend at work. This one looks even better in print.
I guess learning to slow down and be more aware of the world around me has always been difficult. I am always so busy, and I often let ‘busyness’ get in the way of a special experience. Slow down and take a deep breath. Take time to see the beauty around you, and when it’s right, capture it. I hope you see the beauty in the train that is on your track! You will not regret it!
