Stop Taking Pictures in the Name of the Law!
Title:  Stop Taking Pictures in the Name of the Law!
Description:  I guess I am in the minority with regard to trackside contacts with LEOs regarding the photography of rolling assets belonging to the railroads and their facilities. While I have been doing this for a while now in a number of places around California, today was the first time that I have ever been approached by a member of the law enforcement community specifically regarding my action(s) of standing on a platform snapping pictures of trains. It seems that Amtraks recent revamping of their system wide photo policy has placed their peace officers in quite the quandary, because while they obviously dont like having their pictures taken, there is really not a whole they can do about it when you are a ticket holding passenger in an area open to the riding public and not interfering with the loading, unloading, or operation of an Amtrak train. In this instance, it was my intent to capture an image of the Red Cap cart coming up the tunnel to the platform, however when the officer chose to face me and commence making gestures with his hand, he unwittingly became the subject of the photo. He was a nice guy about the whole thing though, so I will not be sending off a letter to the Director of Amtrak in Washington D.C. about this experience.

[Solstice Study] The Conductor
Title:  [Solstice Study] The Conductor
Description:  About three years ago I shot at this spot with this train and captured a few twilight images that I really liked, only they were not very clear and there was a lot of grain due to shooting at a high ISO. Consequently, I had been thinking about re-shooting those images and I finally got around to doing that on the first day of Summer, 2010.
