Train Travels Forward

I hadn’t taken a photo of a train in a while when I took this photo last month.
It was a quick shot in a series of quick shots and a lot of it had to be cut due to my not paying enough attention to the light. Oh well.

This is my submission into the two hundred-and-ninth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
The theme for this one is “Surreal“.

This one is a bit of a reach as this photo doesn’t capture what I’m about to talk about well enough; I feel that there’s a sense of surrealism when you look at a train from a certain angle such as the below and see how it follows tracks because at points it looks much longer than it is and oddly curved. It looks more like it is sort of stretching along the tracks.

The host of the Lens-Artists challenges cycles weekly between the following people:

Week 1 – Tina

Week 2 – Patti

Week 3 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 4 – Amy

Week 5 – John Steiner

Week 6 – Sofia Alves

Week 7 – Anne Sandler

Week 8 – Guest host

This one is guest-hosted by Tracy of Reflections of an Untidy Mind. The next is also guest-hosted and the theme has been announced in advance:

July 30 – Sarah Wilkie, who hosts Travel with Me (Three Favourite Images)

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re enjoyable and allow room for interpretation of the theme without straying too far. If you don’t participate, then I recommend that you at least check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

  1. We have one passenger train that travels through our town… scheduled at around 3 AM, and often late.


  2. Freakishly, the photo gives an impression that the train is tipped on its side. At least it does to me. Thanks for joining in.

    I like following the lines and seeing the details in your silver train shot and then noticing the contrast between the train and its surroundings. In the distance at the end? of the train it appears to be suspended as it goes around the curve in the tracks. Surreal, Yes, and very nice!
