240/365: Train Song (Explore)

Traveling north, traveling north to find you

Train wheels beating, the wind in my eyes

Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you

Call out your name love, don't be surprised


It's so many miles and so long since I've left you

Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you

But suddenly now, I know where I belong

It's many hundred miles and it won't be long


-Feist & Ben Gibbard


Spent the day showing Andrew around the city I'm from. I've always wanted to do a shoot on train tracks, so we ventured down the tracks until we were hidden from the road.


I didn't plan on the train coming so soon...the lights went on within 5 minutes of setting up. I immediately set the tripod up on the hill and switched to a long exposure. 10 minutes later the train came by and was gone with in 5 seconds. This is the only shot I got of it in the frame.

It was a little breezy...and kind of scary.


Andrew has helped me with this project soooo soo much. I owe him my confidence in front of strangers, driving me to all of these awesome locations, and putting up with my frustration when things don't quite work out. He is my biggest supporter and he deserves a little recognition here. I love you so much babe. <3
