Museum Discussion / Re: A few images from Annual Picnic 2011...

Follow the link below to my photos from the Annual Picnic last weekend.
Click on “Slideshow” at the top right of the screen.

I have been to many photo excursions across the country; none better than the productions performed Saturday evening and early Sunday morning. Not static poses; rather well scripted skits in real time for both digital photographers and videographers to capture. In my opinion very cutting edge, please do more…. and soon!

Thank you again to everyone involved in organizing and working the event, as well as maintaining and operating the equipment.

Narrow gauge railroading at it’s finest.
These images are timeless.

Stephen, what you see and your talent for capturing it for the world to enjoy is truly inspiring.

Many more to come from me also, here is a teaser:


Other Narrow Gauge / Re: White Pass Rotary Run - The photos!

Follow the above link to my images from the WP&YR rotary event, featuring the men who operate and maintain the equipment.
A venture in itself just to get up there and back; my third time to Alaska but first to the railroad – I now have the need to see it without snow.

Now if the WW&F only had a rotary…

I am calling attention to, and congratulating, Stephen Hussar for a well deserved second place finish in the recently held Center for Railroad Photography & Art’s “A Story in Three Photographs” contest.

Follow the link above and click on his name to see the entries.
He has combined some of my favorite elements; steam, man, night, and black & white; all three taken at the WW&F last year.

2-foot narrow gauge steam is alive and well through the viewfinder of his camera.
Thank you for sharing your talents, and keep doing what you’re doing!

Once again your images of the WW&F are spectacular, you captured the spirit of the event.
Great side and backlighting shots; especially the child/horses photo.
Merry Christmas to all!

Follow the link above to my photos from the WW&F's annual picnic.
On that Saturday I had the great pleasure and experience of being one-on-one with Julius Stuck, a 92-year young volunteer from Cape Cod ; the first ten images are of him in his customary role as "Station Agent". A few weeks earlier as a birthday present I received an antique Hamilton railroad pocket watch, I had it with me and used it as a prop when photographing Julius. I swear at some point in his life he was a model; a pure natural in front of the camera lens. Just him and I in the Alna Center station for a solid two hours, time so well spent, just sat back and let him talk; hung on his every word. Took me back to a better, vanished time.
To those who have not yet visited the WW&F, I very strongly suggest it. The spirit, will, drive, and enthusiasm of the active volunteers up in Alna blows me away each and every time I visit, I am already looking forward to the Victorian Christmas in mid December.

I will attend both days, camera in hand the entire time.
Like you said, there is many options for us steam photographers out there, quite a few an easier trek than the WW&F.
But there is something very special going on in Alna, the reason I am a life member, the reason I venture to your railroad multiple times a year.
For those reading this and have not visited the WW&F, I strongly recommend it! You will not be disappointed in any way.

Thank you to Jason and the entire crew for giving Stephen, Kevin, and myself free rein to photograph the railroad.
You all put one great show every time I come up there, be back soon!

Work and Events / my 2009 Victorian Christmas photos

The above link is to my photos from Saturday's 2009 Victorian Christmas.
Click on Slideshow on the top-right of the screen.
The last of the set is Santa looking out the window, the ones after are from August of 2008.

Packed passenger coaches, frigid temperatures, dramatic steam, snow, a bonfire, Santa Claus, a sleigh ride pulled by Norwegian fjord horses, and free train rides all day were some of the many highlights; the most fun one can have on 2-foot gauge.

My thanks go out to Stephen Hussar, tour guide with his 4X4, co-pilot Kevin, and the entire WW&F staff.


Museum Discussion / my 2008 Annual Picnic/Photo Freight pictures

My first time to the W.W. & F., I will definitely be back. Plenty of rain, great lobster, and some of the nicest people associated with a railroad anywhere.

Jason: Thank you for giving me permission to roam with my camera. Awesome job with the Photo Freight runs.

Stewart: Beautiful flat bed truck, and thank you for the locomotive lantern, and especially the tour of Alice's Room.

Steve Hussar: Thank you for assisting with the Photo runs, great locations and scenes.

Many thanks to all others also.
