Trains in an airplane place? I love this country!

This is the final shot from my trip to and back from Nashville for my job interview back in ’07. I took this shot standing next to my car on the fifth level of the parking garage at Midway.


Looking out over the train-yard I first thought there wasn't anything really interesting to shoot. Everything looked so static. But I took a shot anyhow and decided to tilt the camera slightly and framed the trains just inside the frame's border.


After, in post-processing, I decided the color version did, indeed, look a little flat. So I went with black and white, bumped up the contrast considerably, burned a few areas to emphasize the grittiness and grime on the trains , and in the end, I really liked what i saw.


Hope you enjoy it, too. :)
