Thanks very much for the recognition that this photo has received. I set my camera to "burst" for this - and most every - WunderPhoto. Like playing baseball: More at-bats increase the chance of getting a hit. ...and the strike-outs cost nothing to "delete". It was hard to choose, though, a single WunderPhoto from this "burst". If you wanna see three pics from both before and after this pic in the "burst", then copy, paste and go to the following address----->


dropbox.com/sh/0j6n0mwdv1zi19j/nF8QKevvEg

Also at the address are five photos which originated when the train was servicing a customer farther east...and three pics showing a crossing where the snow pile had melted a bit and was less accumulated.

About lousyfocus

lousyfocus

SWDM; 60+; 2 grown daughters; 3 indoor cats. Have had only 4 addresses ever - all of which have been within 25 mi. of each other in NE PA, where civilization has become too noticeable. Productivity at this end suffered a setback quite awhile ago, but picture-taking is an attempt to hopefully show that it has at least partially been restored - with some titles and/or captions intending to increase the "fun" of the process. Comments of support have made life immeasurably better. It is hugely attractive that this site provides so many well-done glimpses of the world. My oldest WunderPhotos which understandably weren't anybody's favorites - and thousands of other pics - can no longer be seen by clicking on "Visit My Website" next to this bio. The site (Webshots) has been restructured, resulting in the undoing of many, many hours of effort. "My WunderBlogs" might have provided pleasing viewing...but photos there, too, have been wiped out by the restructuring; and it's unknown if/when the photos will ever be re-uploaded to the blogs. The WunderBlog space is much appreciated and I wish that I could add to it - and upload to WunderPhotos - more often...but realizing that sites can make any change that pleases them has cooled me to the cyber-world.
