Happy New Year everyone. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season filled with good times spent with family and friends.
I wanted to post an image today that was symbolic of the new year/new beginnings, etc., but I just couldn’t find one that worked. So instead, here are some trains that have questionable symbolism at best (maybe I’m on track for something, or need more train-ing???). Anyway, I met up with Bob Lussier over the weekend for an impromptu shoot at a train yard in Lawrence on a cold and gray morning. The bitter cold made our time outside short, but I was able to grab a few images that I liked, including this one.
After seeing one of Bob’s images converted to B&W, I decided to try the same with this shot. Not sure which version I like better, but I’m definitely liking the processing options using Perfect B&W from OnOne Software. It provides so many ways to convert images that you can really find something to fit any taste and style. I hope to try more of this in the new year.
