On the rails by golftragic

On the rails

Quorn, South Australia. Late in the day, no-one around, me photographing railway stuff in the opposite direction and these girls happily doddling along the tracks.
Hopefully there was no chance of a train coming along?

Good subject and nice old fashioned effect, especially on the background. I like the girl balancing on the railway track and the iiregular curved shape of the tracks escaping to the horizon.

Wonderful processing to capture the timelessness of the scene.

Excellent shot and lovely processing

The old rails weaving along so beautifully, the use of the old style processing was the right choice!

I like your processing Marnie - it gives it a vintage feel.

There's something about railroad tracks that works so well with vintage processing. Nice shot- I like how casual their time together appears. A walk on the tracks and time to share secrets.

@pamknowler Almost zero chance Pam. Only trains that run there any more are run by enthusiasts. Quorn used to be a very important railway town. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quorn,_South_Australia

@etienne Thanks Etienne, I'd watched them coming towards me for some time, but preferred to take the shot from the rear.

@gilbertwood yeah, me too.

@angelikavr thanks Angelika. I messed around with lots of possible ways to process this shot, took ages before I came up with this one.

@olivetreeann I watched them coming towards me for some time and they seemed to be quite oblivious to my presence though I was standing there like a bump on a log.

Oh! A memory of youth. Great capture and processing.
July 6th, 2019

@summerfield I'll sometimes wear a jumper with shorts in warm weather, I feel the cold far more on my trunk than my legs. And for youngsters goodness knows what the current fashion is.
