Next stop...Raleigh.

Hoped to capture the North Carolina "Piedmont" train arriving at dusk tonight, but unlike European trains, if it arrives within 15 minutes of it's scheduled arrival time...then it's on time. was on time, but 15 minutes late.  :)  European trains depart and arrive exactly when they are supposed to.  However, I did get some nice light when I arrived and was able to get a couple of interesting shots of the station.  Later the train pulled in, but I struggled with the bright head lights.  Will probably head back there again earlier next summer, when it's still light when the train arrives.  Hopefully it will be on time...or better yet...early.


  1. These pictures are still awesome. Let's take the train sometime!

  2. Sounds good Danal. Train to DC or NY would be a great road trip.

    1. Wait....that wouldn't be a road trip would it?

  3. Thanks for share this post I also share with you something hope you like my post. love this question because I love working with photographers who have successful commercial practices. There are a number of reasons. One is happiness. Photographers who have a financially successful career are a pleasure to deal with. They eat lunch regularly. When money is not an issue, we can do the show and make stuff happen. It can be a problem when a photographer is very, very, busy – but there is more of a problem if the collaboration and the dialogue isn’t respected. If I say I don’t like something, I won’t say it lightly so we should listen to each other. Absolute single mindedness doesn’t help either the artist of the dealer. I can really finesse an artist’s situation. That has value. The fuller a photographer’s practice is, meaning commercial, editorial, exhibition, publication, etc. the better the work will be. This imagined separation of church and state is blind. Get the money. Don’t whore yourself out, but make stuff happen. Thanks
