Phoneography

As much as I carry my camera around with me, I do sometimes find myself without it when there is a photo that needs to be taken. Cell phone cameras these days are pretty nice. I won’t get super large prints from the files, but small to medium sized prints will look excellent from these files. Here is a quick gallery of recent phoneography on the train to New York.

This is what the dining car on the Crescent line looks like at 3am. I was going through to the bathroom, did not have my camera, so I took it with my phone.

The dining car at dinner, as the sun was setting. We went in for dinner. I did not bring my camera, because I was hungry and tired. But the sun coming through that window was more than I could resist. Cell phone worked great.

The view from the window as we were entering New York City on the Crescent line. The camera was picking up so much dirt on the windows, so I tried the cell phone. I’m happy with this the way it came out.

Trains! Trains! Trains!

It’s no secret that I love all things train. I am especially enamored with steam trains. A nostalgia for something I never experienced seems odd to me. I am sure that back in the day train travel was not easy, clean, or efficient. Now, everything is modernized and the steam for most is no longer coal but oil, cutting down on cinders. I have ridden a modern Amtrak train and the ride was comfortable and fun. I will definitely  do it again. But the sound of the steam whistle makes my heart sing.  To purchase any of these, click here.
