GO Trains: Night and Day

Sun Nov 23 00:25:18 2008

This is a Manual mode photograph taken of the old F45, soon to be retired engines, pulling into Port Credit station. It looks a bit underexposed. [1 of 3]

This is one of the new engines being introduced into service which is capable of pulling 12 cars. [1 of 3]

A night shot, taken in Program mode, of the 20:07 train pulling out of Port Credit station (engine is at the rear of the train). [1 of 1]

All the stations are having the platforms lengthened to accommodate 12 cars; the new platform sections can be identified from the thicker yellow warning lines.

Advice for Budding Photographers

David sent me an article on Magnum's blog with thoughts and suggestions about photography from several Magnum photographers.

Sometimes, one photographer's advice to look at other photographer's work, is contradicted by another who prefers to not be influenced by others; I suppose it's up to each of us to decide.

I liked Constantine Manos' advice, "... show us something we have never seen before and will never see again." I would like to think that the "Fantastic Foursome" photograph, above, was inspired by this philosophy.


This blog will go live on a full-time basis when I have finished copying all my old articles from my journal. I have a Picasa Album for my photos.
