Where did I put that darn Camera?



The camera was dusted off and carried/concealed in my Pink Birthday Purse (which could house an elephant... I love large carry-all's) for the trip to downtown Clarskville last evening for the celebratory anniversary meal.

Since I have been neglecting the camera, the flash did not fire and the pictures are very disappointing, but I am determined to return and click happily away as soon as it stops raining.

In the meantime I submit this offering to the Sepia Scenes website. I took this a long time ago at the Mayberry Train Museum. My daughter and I (back when she was younger) took several rides on this train. The Halloween Train, the Civil War re-enactment when Morgan's Raiders robbed the train to name two off the top of my head.

Hi!
That's a very nice photo of the train. It looks like one we rode on before. The sepia really makes it look old! Have a great day!

Nice sepia pic alpha. Jesse James comes to mind when looking at it. (or James Garner)

Cool. Has the feel of a speeding train from an old silent film crashing out into the audience.

I love the comment from Annie--it does feel like it's speeding right out of the screen. Nicely done. Hope you can stop by to see my sepia scene Thanks!

My husband LOVES trains. We took a train up a mountain in New Hampshire. It was scary!!! Very little room beyond the rail. Very picturesque though. I see you figured out how to upload the pic.
Belated anniversary greetings. How many years? My 7 is coming up so I am saying I have the 7 year itch. Gotta keep him on his toes right?
I see snail mail in your future.
What prize? LOL

Great shot! I usually don't like sepia because it looks so fake but you pulled it off perfectly here.
