The Railway Scene; Some Elements, Operations and Technology to Consider.

Quantification isn’t the best approach. Yet, I like to consider various elements of the railway scene when reviewing my photography.

I realize that many photographers focus their work on those elements that grip their interest.

In my travels, I like to keep my spectrum as broad as possible. I’m always seeking to capture different scenes that relate to the railway as a whole.

Below are some of the many categories covered in my photography and in the posts on Tracking the Light. Undoubtedly some topics are more popular than others.
