The last several postings were devoted to vehicles that traversed city streets; viz. cars, buses, trucks, etc. This week’s shots are of 'vehicles' that move on tracks. Thus, the image below is that of a railroad car that is in the New Jersey transit system. Our youngest daughter and her family happen to live in Chatham, NJ. When we visit with them, we try to spend one day visiting in NYC, to which we travel by train [and once by train and ferry]. I noticed that the colorful emblem for the NJ Transit included a striking swatch of orange and could not resist making this shot.
The remaining images were shot in Rochester along a railroad track. Quite a number of boxcars were adorned with graffiti; and one provided its own orange-brown rust.
Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.
