Nice Composition...

It sure brings back memories of always seeing a caboose at the end of a train.   I never would have thought they would become just a memory.

Nice composition Lannie.  I like the rust and faded lettering VERY much.

Thanks as always, Deb.

When I was a kid growing up in the Carolina piedmont, Southern Railway was a huge road with many thousands of cars and engines.  Now that it has been consolidated with Norfolk Western to form Norfolk Southern (actually about twenty-five years ago), old Southern cars are getting rarer and rarer--especially cabooses.  I can't remember the last time I saw one of their green and white engines.

This is nicely composed and presented. A classic shot well done.

Lannie:  Another good old railroad car.  I guess I would have liked to see the bay window a little more to the left, so the composition follows the rule of thirds.  Tom 

Landrum Kelly

You're right, Tom--although not necessarily for the rule of thirds.

Lannie:You're right, "rules are to be bent not broken"  How about the rule of 1/5 that would do it in this case.  Tom
