I got the pictures from the Professional Photographer I mentioned in the last few days.
These are the pictures of several of the characters that I talked about yesterday. He has put them out there in its own special album for folks to go look, admire … and buy. By all means buy.
And if pictures of people is not your idea of great art, then I have no doubt that his “real” pictures … the ones of the Steam Locomotive and others … will be ones you will want for your own collection.
And in another shameless plug, here is his Facebook Photography page.
But so much for a word from our sponsor. Here are the pictures.
I decided to show them all here … some with comments or captions … and if you have any suggestions for alternate captions, suggest away.
First, let me catch up on the characters from yesterday … at least some of them. First we have Hair Guy … and his pet hair. I told you it was tall.
And then there is Vest Guy. I didn’t have pictures of Vest Guy yesterday, but you can see why I thought him noteworthy.
There were many folks making more than subtle fashion statements there. And although the pictures don’t do them all justice, this will give you an idea of the style that was there. Or Not.
I did mention that it rained on Monday, didn’t I? Buckets and buckets of rain. Not a good thing for a person with naturally curly hair as it turns out.
There were also more than a handful of attitudes displayed there … as shown in the pictures here … a whole lot of arms folded across the chest and hands in pockets whatever that means.
The Old White Guys corner … up close and at a distance.
Everyone was in touch … and to show you pictures of people with cell phones would be repetitive. Cell phones with cameras, cell phones without cameras, cell phones with train sounds, cell phones with apps of train sounds, cell phones with apps of where the Locomotive was … and possibly the worst cell phone reception in the County.
But here are a few representative pictures of people staying in touch … more or less.
And finally, we have the pictures of the folks with cameras … lots and lots and lots of cameras. Little cameras, big cameras, professional cameras, toy cameras … well, you get the idea.
And here are the pictures of … the cameras.
“I want to get that shot … ahhh, much better with my glasses off.”
Everyone had cameras …
Some had iPad Cameras …
… even the Amish had cameras. Well, at least camera bags.
And the folks took pictures of everything … and I mean everything. After all, what else was there to do during the hours of waiting for the train to come through? Except talk, eat hot dogs, and take pictures.
But my absolute favorite two of the pictures that were supplied to me today are the following two. Absolutely made me laugh out loud when I saw them. Let me preface them both with the fact that many shots were to be had … and that it had rained … buckets … and many creative ways were devised to keep cameras dry.
“Lord, please let this shot turn out the way I want.”
“Yeah, a Doritos Bag … that will work.”
Once more I would like to thank Shannon Allison of Shannon Allison Photography for all of the pictures in the blog today.
Hey, if this guy can do this well on a rainy day with no set-up or special lighting … imagine what he can do when he tries?
