Going through the archives yesterday I ran across a couple of shots I took in 2008. My intention was to try and rediscover photos that I might have overlooked but deserved a second chance. The following two photos of a train, or to be more specific parts of a train, were worthy of a little massaging and also lucky enough to be featured here today for your viewing enjoyment.
The first image is of a train wheel taken just as the train arrived at the station. The second image is of a pair of seats inside the train. Once the photos were selected, I realized that these two photos work nicely as a set. The obvious of course is that they both are photographs featuring parts of a train. In this case they are of the same train, which happens to be part of the Cape Cod Central Railroad. The second discovery, or I should say observation is the similar color pallet shared in these two images. *Look at the photos below.* *Good.* *Now continue reading.* Did you notice the same thing I did? Excellent, each image has red and blue as the main tones.
Wheels and tires don't usually spark my creativity, but these two photos of train parts intrigue me. Part of the intrigue is the inner child within that loves trains and steam engines. Another part of the intrigue is the 'Neo' in me. It is about choice. Red or blue pill... which to choose? Do I board the train or not? Red seat or blue seat? Choose one!
