Last Post

After 277 posts and a lot of fun I'm calling it quits. I simply can't maintain a blog, a Facebook page and a Flickr page. Something has to give. So, I decided to shut the blog down. It's been fun, but I gotta move on. If you want to catch me I'm on Flickr at: or on Facebook at:!/profile.php?ref=profile&id=100000040862097

Once again, it's been fun. See you all on the other side.

The 743 in Freight Service

A little something the Scenic Railroad does every January for a group of railfans...running a photo freight. This is the first time in several years that I haven't been working when the train ran. Needless to say, I had fun.

The grandeur of passenger travel is such that little written word is needed.

My Favorite Photo

I got tagged by LemonyRenee' to post my favorite photo. Hahahahaha! If she knew how many photos I have and then ask me to post my favorite. I had biology tests in college that were easier. Anyway, after three days of rummaging around and scratching my head, I pulled this one out.

This is my son back in 1987 at a family reunion. I was lying under a tree in the front yard at my wife's Aunt Mib's place. It was that point of the festivities when the grown ups were off in their little clusters catching up on things, the big kids had wondered off, and the little kids were napping. My son was just playing around, by himself, when he grabbed a volleyball and started batting it around. I grabbed my camera and fired once. And this is it. Hope you like it.

Uh, I'm not quite sure how this tagging thing works, but I'm tagging my better half over at A Mother's Minute.

Tag . . . you're it!

Post your favorite photo and tell us about it. Then post a comment here at Tara Cain's blog to be part of the photo display.

Last Run of the Season

734 made its last run for 2009. Wanting to capture my favorite subject in the snow I grabbed my trusty camera and headed out. I wasn't disappointed. The first four photos were taken at the east end of the narrows. The last photo was taken at the Helmstetter farm.
