Hope You Were Out Shooting!

We had two photographic options This weekend.  Today was Worldwide Pinhole Day and Doors Open Denver.  Last year we missed Pinhole Day due to a rain out.  This year we were able to do both, AND I also had a concert this weekend........Way over booked!

My choice was ultimately the Holga Pinhole, because I am also doing Holga for the 52 Rolls Project.

Details from Engine 491: Lessons Learned

Note to self, always take a photo of the front of the Engine so you can identify it later........This I did not do for Engine 491.  However, it had a unique pipe system which allowed me to identify it later:



Some information on Engine 491, and if you look closely you can see the pipes.......


Engine 491 was our first stop inside the Museum and I got really caught up in the gears, machinery and textures:

Ending the Week.......

With the End of the Train..........

I've had a busy week at a conference....and dozens of great images from the Railroad Museum to edit.  So I'm finally on track to start my posting in earnest: Caboose 49.


A selection of three Cabooses from the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad.


If you Google the Caboose # you'll get a link to it's history....e.g. Caboose 0578



In fact all Engines and Cabooses have unique numbers that you can search on the web for more information.......

Saturdays Online: A Note On Wanton Destruction!


Just as we care about our wildlife and wouldn't want to cause unnecessary damage to the environment.  It would have been 'nice' if this editor from the Farm Security Administration hadn't been so arrogant as to think he knew what should be preserved for posterity.
