Why Me?

September 27, 2017

As much as I whine about clouds, you guys probably wonder why I persist in my photographic endeavors. I too, wonder. This past Friday (9/22/2017) had yet another example of how unfair life has been to me πŸ˜‰.

UP manifest MEWTU-23 had had an elusive, brand-new SD70ACe-T4 on the point. In the 15 minutes that I waited for UP 3039 at Stafford near MP 21, there was amazing sun. As the train came into view, the one cloud in the western sky drove a dagger into my heart (metaphorically).

Cursing my bad luck, I almost brought the camera down from my eye in disgust. But I persisted, making some quick settings changes to compensate for the cloud’s treachery.

These are good looking units. MOAR PLZ.

Had I been 200 yards east, I would have been OK. But I wasn’t. Somebody, please call me a waahhh-mbulance!

    While you may be cussing the lack of a Texas blue sky, the neutral back ground make the photo detail pop so from a modeling standpoint this a definite plus. Thanks for your continued work and have heart you will be rewarded for your persistence.

    O.K., so there was not a perfect condition. I think your shots are well worth the posts you send out. I see these things from the Rosenberg Railroad Museum where I am a docent, and they truly don’t look much better when they roll by. Keep up the good work. Ande Courtin
