About the Cover: Black Train
Trains have been featured here many times before, but not this one, and not in the location in which it was shot. I was passing the Taylor yards on a recent morning when I spotted this beauty out of the corner of my eye. I spun the car around and snapped off a few photos.
Here's the problem. The light wasn't the greatest and the train was moving. The shots were not clear and that drove me nuts. A big black diesel in the middle of the night was beautiful, and I just didn't capture it with my smart phone. As hard as I tried, I couldn't minimize the blur.
I was passing by again Friday morning. I saw the train and decided to make another go of it. This time, the train wasn't moving, and I managed to snap off a few good ones.
