“Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at us, conclusions grow up in us like fungus: one morning they are there, we know not how, and they gaze upon us, morose and gray. Woe to the thinker who is not the gardener but only the soil of the plants that grow in him.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Trains hold an important place in our country's past and they still have a strong role today in transporting people and goods. They also hold a fascination for me and many others.
I decided to shift to black and white in order to perhaps change my perspective or exercise my creative brain a bit more. Two of these photos were taken with the Olympus OM-D and the third with my Apple iPhone 4.
Fast forward for a moment... Hight water continues flowing over the Cooleemee River Park (The Bullhole) dam four days after heavy rain.
Not a lot of photography, or blog following, happening at the moment. It's a mental and physical "pause" -- and I'm going with the flow and doing more reading. Hence, I pull this image from the archives of last years Italy vacation. No doubt the urge will return as will the posting -- perhaps when this every day rain stops and the sun returns.
