Ever since I was a kid I’ve been fascinated by trains. Some of the earliest photos I remember taking where of the trains that used to come into Fredericton’s York Street station. There was a time when I could even name the different locomotives and their designed purposes. Man, kids really grab hold of some odd things huh?
My love of trains remains. I love driving along-side one of those mile-long freight trains and counting cars. And when time allows, I’ll pull over and get dangerously close to the tracks, spellbound by the weight, speed, and power a train commands.
This photo was shot in MacAdam. I was scoping trains and feeling like a kid. It was cold but it was great.
The music was an experiment I recorded on a recent Sunday afternoon. It didn’t get much farther than this. Probably a good thing.
