Golden express

It’s a silver train, but as I’ve said so many times on this blog, the street lights in Chicago are predominantly gold. By the time I captured this express train blitzing by at about 70 miles per hour, my hands were numb. The wind was whipping on the platform. I can’t believe my tripod didn’t fall over, and I only stood on the blacktop maybe five minutes to set up and wait for the train. Then it was back down on the street for the next 15 minutes before mine rolled in.

    • Another image that almost never made it to the blog but eventually wore me down. My photos are like having children. The can coerce me to do things for them, but I want to make sure they are capable before sending them out in the world.
