Going To The Mill

I have always liked the view of this one railroad crossing. It always seems to appear busy, even minus the train. The tracks run right by a feed mill, and then across the street is a chemical, fertilizer company. I guess the only thing I would like to see added to this would be a train coming towards me. Oh yeah, that would do it.
Looks like it goes forever.

I have taken a photo on the tacks with a train coming towards me while I was in Wales. Fortunately, the train wasn't going very fast as it was a steam train and I pulled off three shots before getting onto the platform. Meanwhile the station master was getting a little panicked that I was the last one off the track... but I had to get my shot. :)

Where there are tracks there are trains. Nicely done Rick.

To me it looks deserted. I've never ever thought of taking a picture of railroad tracks..must keep my eyes open for them. I've pictures of train stations when we were in vacation but never thought them interesting enough for a picture on 365..
I like your picture probably because of the buildings on both sides..they look interesting to me.

Or a couple of cars on one of the side tracks...with some graffiti on them. ;-) Very nicely processed.

Nice lines and composition. It suits b&w very well.

Looks very industrialized!!

Great composition Rick!

I love looking down train tracks like this too. Before we moved to PA we lived across the street from train tracks. If I had been doing 365 there, I definitely would have gotten a train coming down the track shot! I like the b/w here- gives it a deserted feeling in a way.

I love the POV, and b&w is perfect

Awesome perspective, Rick! You words tell a whole story about this spot, and this photo captures a whole world that I suspect is disappearing - which makes your processing so, so spot on.

busy and industrial feel to this shot with the ageless processing is fascinating
posted April 18th, 2012  
great shot! yes the train would be a bonus :)

Beautiful pov, Rick.

Neat perspective and composition!

Nice b& w

Great lines! I like the buildings along the edge giving it an industrial feel. Works really well in B&W too :)

Lovely low down perspective ...there is something about rail tracks...where do they end up !!!!
posted April 18th, 2012  
You are silly! NO train! Love the black and white. It perfectly depicts this scene. It could be in any decade. You done good!
posted April 18th, 2012  
Thats cool. Love the lines and diminishing perspective.
posted April 18th, 2012  
There's just something about train tracks... Great shot. Love it in b&w.
posted April 18th, 2012  
Cool perspective, I like it....

Great shot, perspective, tones and B/W processing.

great in black and white!

I think this makes a great location for a shoot, I can imagine quite a few themed shots that can be taken here. Great shot, lines and vanishing point (a new term I learnt in my course on Monday :))
