Waiting for a train

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 16 March 2011 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Miniature train ride in the South Marine Park, South Shields.
The kids were off school for a week, and the sun came out for a few hours, so it was a good opportunity to raise some steam and get the train rolling after sitting in its shed all winter.

I feel I'm missing out with this kind of processed over exposure, not my favourite, but the train looks interesting!

A bit over processed for my taste Curly! Love the low angle of the shot! ;-)

Processing matches the vintage appearance of the train, but it was the perspective that made me do a double take and read the text. Nicely done Curly!
