Tracks (25/365)

~*~*~


“The only way to be sure of catching a train is to miss the one before it.”
~ G. K. Chesterton

TIME: 12:35 PM
PLACE: Podunk Illinois
SUBJECT: Train Tracks

There are times when I realize just how removed I am from the hustle and bustle of Chicago even though it is only one hour away. Although these tracks won't get me to the city (Metra doesn't come out this far) a glimpse of them momentarily transports me to a time when life was much more simple.

I love track pictures.

That looks quite a bit like our little town! Lovely.

My husband would agree with "We're Doomed." He loves train tracks and takes many pictures of them. When we first started dating, I thought he was strange for taking more pictures of "things" than of me. Now, with age and wisdom, I understand and know better.

Wow. This is a truly beautiful picture. For some reason it speaks to me. It's my favorite so far this year.

black & white - the definition of "simple".
