I think this is the last of the PIAP images I’ll be posting. I was pretty happy with my success rate of 70 some photos out of 300 that didn’t suck.
I like how the film rendered this. I tried it in digital and it just didn’t work as well to me
I was interested most in the yellow rails and the red of the car. Then I noticed the smear of green in the window.
The fall colors in the railroad car windows and the sides of the car are what fascinated me
This is the color version of the shot that was in the last post.
Here’s the color version of the side of the car I also did in B&W earlier.
I love the details in this. The B&W didn’t work as well for me. Not sure why
I liked the colors in this and the front of the engine against the sky
Several of these images are the color versions of photos I also did in B&W. Which do you prefer better, color or B&W. Let me know in the comments!
I’ve been posting photos from my trip down to Mississippi and Memphis early this month. Here are some more, all shot on film. The Pig in a Poke Collection came about when I offered to sell some prints half price if folks wanted to pay for them, before I’d even seen scans. This was a little nerve wracking for me, because, shooting film, you can never be sure what you got until the scans come back. It was a great confidence boost too since a few folks took me up on the offer. They had faith in my work. Pretty cool feeling!
I knew the trains in the Collierville park would make great subjects, and I think these black and whites were the best of the best. I’ll be posting color photos in another post.
Watch your step notice. I liked the wheel and the rails on this
I thought this would make a cool photo with the lines leading to the distant point. I’m happy with how it came out.
Loved how the end of the train seems 3 D in this photo, done on my Holga camera
I liked the busy bottom half and the calm top half
Watch your Step
If there was no tower in the back, you might not be able to tell when this was done
I liked the graphic quality of this
If you’re ever in Natchez Mississippi, you really have to visit the Longwood Mansion. Building started on the mansion right before the Civil War broke out. The exteriors were completed and the basement living quarters were done, all 10,000 sqare feet of them. The remaining 20,000 square feet never got finished. It was occupied by relatives til the 1980s or 1990s then the property was donated to a garden club. One of their caretakers stayed in the home til about 5 years ago. Apparently there are about a million bricks in the darn thing. Of course I had to do some photos. Here are some of my favorites that made it into the now infamous Pig in a Poke Collection.
When I think of the deep south, I always think of Spanish Moss. Of course this mansion had plenty
The Longwood Mansion Front Entrance
Steps at the Mansion
I liked how the steps were echoed and reversed in the wall behind them
