A Good Day for Photography by Gary Watson

Yesterday afternoon was beautiful!  Sunny, warm -- just the right weather for photography.  I took my 4X5 Graphic View over to THE SILOS for a test shot, hoping to capture a train passing by the building.  While I was setting up the camera, two trains went past.  Then, once the camera was in place, nothing.  I waited.  Took a shot without a train.  I waited some more.  Just as I was about to give up I saw the triangle of headlights coming down the track.  I pulled the slide on the camera and released the shutter.  One frame -- one moment captured.
