Tracking the Light New Year’s Eve Post: Black River & Western; reflections and sunset.

Of these two photos, which do you like best? (only see one photo? click on Tracking the Light for the full post).

As the years ends, I’ve drawn on two clichés; reflection and  sunset.

A couple of weeks ago, I exposed both of these  images using my Lumix LX7 on the Black River & Western.

Reflect back over the last year? Did you make memorable photographs?

Sunset symbolizes the end of the day, but also the beginning of night. It is when light is in transition.

For my sunset image of Black River & Western 2-8-0 number 60, I show a dual transition; the fading light of day is one; the other is the conceptual juxtaposition of the antique world of the steam locomotive with the modern world of tarmac roads, uninspired modern architecture and a proliferation of wires.

Happy New Year’s Eve from Tracking the Light!
