Keeping on track

Trains run on schedules, except they really don't. Knowing I can get this shot means I have to make it to one particular spot to be able to observe the signal lights, which gives me a short widnow to make it down to a place where I can safely take the photo. Tueseday night I managed to get this, while last night I missed it by about a minute.

Soft Yard Work

I love proper soft focus lenses, and to some extent, soft focus filters. Emulating the effect digitally rarely achieves the exact same feel. Not to mention, much like the fixed, tangible, and permanency of film, using a soft focus lens or filter is an artistic decision that can't be undone. Once shot, you have forever committed to the look.
