I'll confess that while I hang around the tracks to
take train photos, I'm also hoping to catch something
more dramatic and possibly tragic.
Being in the right place at the right time, with a camera can be very lucrative.
In this case it looked like I was finally going to
catch a major wreck, and the fact that it was a firetruck
meant that a derailment was likely.
BAD news for everyone concerned, so I started shooting.
Luckily the truck finally cleared the crossing, so nobody
And I didn't bag a once-in-a-lifetime shot that could
have paid for a new camera.
Maybe next time.
