Here are some more photos from the PIAP collection. I just liked them. The railroad car that became someone’s home is an awesome idea. Are you brave enough to go outside the box like this? I liked the church benches too. They’ve been a part of the church since the pre-civil war era. I like the grain in the photo. Was it taken a few months ago, or 50 years ago? I’d love to hear your comments!

Being I was with you when these were made, I do have the inside track. I’ve photographed that church before but have never been there this early in the day when the light seemed to be perfect for certain images. This image as well as the one with the book on the pew have a certain look to them that I’ve never seen before in this building. What is amazing to me are the shadows created and how just that single pew is the one highlighted. As for the old railroad car – I found this entire tableau to be quite conflicted. I use “tableau” because it almost seemed make-believe – almost theatrical. It seemed rather strange to find this where it is when the nearest railroad tracks were several miles away. Of course, this juxtaposition is what makes it so interesting.
It was a great day for photos! I love the ephemeral nature of our photo treks.
I really like the one in Lowry’s church. Nice timeless feeling to it. The colour and contrast on the rail house is perfect.
