Reflections and Dreams


This is a little magic. And, some good seeing. In very bright sun.

You’ve seen this passenger car in the past. I like visiting this place. In all kinds of light. I like photographing old train cars. Especially passenger cars. You already know that. This little train yard is easy to reach on foot. Like a one minute walk. That’s good right now.

So? What’s different in these pictures?

Look closely.

Look at the windows. Some wonderful reflections, huh? The pictures become more than documents. They become symbolic. They become something about the power and freedom of travel. Of dreams. And, of days gone by.

At least that’s what I think.



    1. I think the original designs were created about the same time. Airstream has been around a lot longer than most people realize. I was just looking at this the other day, but in the mid-1950s they designed RVs (not just trailers or caravans) that looked like space ships.
