whistle blower…

whistleblower2

Nope! I’m not standing on the tracks! I learned my lesson about two years ago, when I underestimated the speed at which a slow train is actually travelling. I heard the whistle blow, but couldn’t see the train around the bend about 5 blocks away. So I figured I had enough time to set up my tripod on the grass beside the track and get out of the way. Not so much. I literally jumped down off the side of the track just as the train reached me and felt the suction of air as it went past. A stupid, stupid, stupid mistake that will never be repeated. I’m actually hanging over the railing on the left side when I took this photo. Sadly, we lost a young woman jogger who crossed in front of a train on this track last year, just behind where the train is in this picture. It’s nothing to fool around with, for sure.

 

gutsy gull…

SEA GULL 72dpi

 

I just about froze my fingers off on our local pier in White Rock, BC yesterday. It was grey, cold and wet, but I’m on a deadline for a new series of photos, and I had to brave the elements. There were slim pickin’s for my shots, so I was grateful to this sea gull, who really didn’t mind it when I walked up and shoved a camera in its face. I’m hoping the sun will stick around long enough for me to get some better shots today. Cross your fingers.
