Making the mundane exciting and interesting is the very essence of design.
Capturing an image of the common in a way that causes someone to stop and take notice of that which they might normally pass on by gives purpose to the effort.
Sights like this are part of every day on the railroad.
To us, they are nothing exciting or different.
Look at them through the lens, and they take on a different light.
You can smell the railroad just looking at these.
You can sense the very essence of the backbone of America.
