This was something that caught my eye at the Southeastern Railway Museum. The detail of this gate and the WATCH YOUR STEP stencil on the wall of the car just called out, look at me! With the grass in the yard and the other rail cars off in the distance it just seemed to me to be a combination of color, light and texture that I couldn’t pass up.
Sometimes, I am not sure what will interest others when I spot things like this. You might not share my enthusiasm for the patterns and contrast in light but it made me smile. Trying to please others is a continual exercise in self-abuse. Somebody will always criticize and someone else will not like anything you do, no matter what.
If I was doing this as a profession, I would probably drive myself nuts. As long as I enjoy what I’m doing and I am continuing to grow and learn to do better, that’s what makes me keep going. So, if I like the outcome, at least one person is happy.
