On a recent visit to my parents hometown I discovered these two abandoned rail cars on a spur track just outside of town. I honestly don't remember ever seeing them although I was assured that they have been sitting here now for many years. At one point Hartwell had a thriving rail operation and as a child I loved watching the small switch engines sort the various rail cars into a train. Sadly all of this is gone now and the tracks have either been pulled up or have been overrun by tall grasses and weeds. And yet here these two cars sit and serve as a reminder of a bygone time.
Hi everyone. Over the span of my photographic years I have admittedly never been afraid to try out new cameras and equipment. In fact I think I have used just about every brand except Canon. My first camera was a Yashica Rangefinder I received as a gift, from "Santa Claus", in 1968. My love of cameras and the journey of image making began there.
