Trains, Planes and Automobiles make for some interesting subjects in photography. I love the industrial sleek lines you get from them, either in black, white or any color you choose. They make for some interesting conversation pieces. When hung on a wall or in a frame sitting on a coffee table.
I photographed the locomotive in Stevens Point, Wisconsin down under the old metal bridge, crossing the Wisconsin River. I waited for quit some time for that train to begin it’s crossing.
It seemed as if the engineer was teasing. Because he’s pull up to the bridge look down at me, then pull back, back and forth he’d go.
Then finally away he went, very slow and easy across that old metal bridge. There’s just something about watching a train, especially when it’s crossing a bridge over a body of water.
This was on the back side of the old metal bridge. I loved how smooth the water was on this side, and the reflection of the train cars going by.

A once in a million shot of a passenger jet flying by the August Sturgeon almost Full Moon.
I’ve photographed many different type of jets during the day light hours, flying across the moon. I’ve never caught one at night! They go so fast across the night moon, it’s like a blink of an eye.
It takes lots of patience, perfect timing and the right flight schedule to catch those rare events. As well as keeping your eye through the view finder of your camera. I was so lucky to get to catch this one, because I had just adjusted my camera on it’s tripod and did a quick glance. Low and behold there it was! This is why you want a cable release when photographing the moon or the night sky. Keep your cable in your hand at all times. Then all you have to do is hold the button down and let it do it’s thing. This way you have no camera shake, and clearer pictures.
Trains, Planes and Automobiles
Oh what automobiles they were. Last Sunday I got the opportunity to attend a car show in Mosinee, Wisconsin. What a great time that was! I was in heaven looking and photographing those beauties, it was candy for the eyes. I haven’t been to a car show since I was a teen, and this has re-awoken my love for them.
There was something there for everyone and for all ages. The beautiful red Malibu was still owned by the original owner, who bought it at the age of 18. Love these kind of stories, how people have kept and restored their very first vehicle.
If your someone who love speed and wants something that hugs the road, around those corners. Then this one is for you, I believe this is a Shelby Cobra in mint condition.
This all white truck really caught my eye. I’m not sure the age of it, or what it was originally used for. But I sure did love the smooth lines, and the paint job was pristine.
If your into luxury or just plain love brightly painted vintage vehicles, there was lots of them as well.
How about restoring one for yourself it’s for sale, a classic Scooby-Do Volkswagen! They remind me of my childhood, my grandma had one and us kids loved it. Hers had everything in it for travel, and travel she did.
When I had arrived at the car show, they had been announcing those who won trophies for best of class, etc.
But unfortunately I didn’t get to see all the ones that won. Nor did I get to see or photograph all the vehicles, that I wanted to. As soon as they had finished with the announcements, most of them packed up and left right away. I wish they had stuck around through the time they had advertised the show was supposed to last. I would have been able to see it all. The ones that I did happen to catch, they were on their way out of the park. Either way I had a great time and there’s always next time.
Bitten by the car show bug
If you attend car shows or even enter your vehicle in the shows, and if you’ve ever won a trophy. I was able to talk with a few of the folks who owned these gorgeous machines. Each one of them had a very interesting story and knowledge of their pride and joy. They were so kind and happily shared their personal journey into car shows. It seems the bug has bitten me as well, and am excited to head off to the next one!
