Daily Deviation

Given 2011-09-11
Suggester says; A great perspective shot in black-and-white that manages to portray a slightly gritty texture and feel, in some ways evocative of another, bygone era.

How did you get such a great vantage point to take this photo. You've managed to line up the vertical lines and the tracks
perfectly as if this image was taken with a view camera using tilts and swings to correct the perspective. MikeZ.

Man, I get asked that all the time. ;) There is a bridge over the tracks. I stood in the middle, using my wide angle. Choose a vertical composition to get the correct straight lines. Didn't even need to digitally or manually correct the perspective! (heh heh heh)

I've been on this stop so many times in my life, and I never saw it as beautiful before.
I actually always thought it was a little bit scary!

It's a matter of practice & experimentation. And personal enjoyment. It's work, but if you can't enjoy it, the end results mean nothing.
