Yup, that train is headed this way!

I had a fun day mingling with different people and looking out for trains. There was a little kid who pretty much stuck by me and told me stories of people who were nearly killed by the trains.

I started by taking pictures of trains from a massive distance but have slowly come closer and closer. I still think I have yet to get the perfect train shot so it's a work in progress.

This is so exotic to me. I am really enjoying letting my eye wander about in discovery.

So much interest here. It does seem a bit washed out or over exposed to me but I love exploring the image. One of my top five. Voted earlier.

Ralaxed railroad rhythms. Is that train moving? 6

For me, a very unnatural sight seeing the people waiting ON the tracks. Here, in the US, we never know when (or even IF) the train is coming so we take precaution NOT to be near the tracks (unless they're not used any longer).
Aside from that I like the use of high keyness here to match the clothing.
All in all a high mark from me. Great job!

What a crazy scene, nothing I would have imagined.

Is this where the people climb all over the train to ride it? Great image. The people seem to have no concern of the approaching train.

And nobody seems to care... nice catch. The image seems a bit washed out. I'd like to see it with more contrast.
