About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

Speaking of historic trains...

It's too bad CA is closing parks because of the budget - and not addressing the real issues that have created the budget crisis...

I hate to think of parks closing, and I've never seen this one. What do you suppose they're going to do with the railcars? When I was living alone, I always thought it would be fun to convert a caboose into a residence.
Sigh.

Great photo of the trains at the Park. It's such a shame regarding the parks closures.

Have to agree with Louis, so sad that so many parks are closing and I ask the same question -- why don't they deal with budget issues that they created???? And I'm certain it isn't just CA! Terrific capture, wonderful composition and gorgeous skies!

How sad that California parks are being closed! The future doesn't sound very good, methinks.

Too bad, they shouldn't close it down. Its symbolic of an bygone era. Nice shot!

The red of the train against the blue sky is beautiful.
