Vermont Rail System – 1st Day in Burlington
There is so much to blog about, but I suppose I should start at the beginning. With two cancelled flights, a take off (FINALLY) the next day to Vermont, and pouring rain, I was actually super excited to get over to the Vermont Rail System to take pictures of some of my favorite things…Trains!
A few months ago I contacted some guys at the Rail station (Hi Ed!) about possibly coming in to take some photographs. I was allowed, but only with certain rules – 1) I had to have a safety briefing 2) I couldn’t go across any tracks (hey, it was a working train yard) and 3) just be careful in general.
So I trudged out in the rain and for the first time in my life, took pictures when it was pouring. There is something to be said about rain dripping in your face as you try to look through the camera – kind of feels like you are working for something. It’s not comfortable, it’s wet, but the sense of accomplishment is even greater when you see the finished product.
I hope you love them as much as I do!
Yes, a toilet, I know…odd. But when it started raining pretty heavy (see the picture below) I stopped in this manly, greasy shed…where this pristine throne sat…just couldn’t help myself!!
