One of Jacob's first train photographs....
My 10-year-old son Jacob accompanied me on the mission to photograph Amtrak Heritage unit 156 last Sunday. I handed him my 20D and told him to snap away. I had not looked at his images until I just downloaded them to clear the card in the camera. Much to my surprise and delight several of the photos are very good. I have posted my favorite one here to share.
We followed BNSF Culbertson, NE to Beaumont, TX grain train G-CULBNT9-25 from Metro to Lambert, stopping a few times to get the shot. One stop was at Main Street in Ponder to try a new angle. I have always wanted to incorporate this quaint downtown in a railroad photograph. The shot my son took is not the angle I went for...and I should have. Well done, Jacob!
