Train Tuesday.

Today’s photo is from the Georgetown Loop Narrow Gauge RR in Georgetown, Colorado.

For several years, I was hosting photography tours of the heritage railroad and it was a lot of fun. Met many new friends and got to know quite a few of the folks working at the RR.

I need to get out and do more rail photography. Been working the Durango & Silverton NGRR for the past couple of years. Colorado is ripe with steam rail history. As a kid, I was a model railroader and many of the trains in Colorado were represented in my basement HO gauge layout.

Have a great day.

Making a Photograph Look Old

Train Tuesday.

Someone asked me one time, “what’s your best technique for making a photograph look old?”

My response. “Take the photograph and wait 50 years before you look at it”

In all seriousness though, for several years I made quite a bit of money at art festivals selling photographic prints of steam trains, converted to sepia tone and placed in vintage wood frames.  It was a staple of my printed product line for several years.
