Imagine having two passions that deliver entirely different types of satisfaction, both equally satisfying; one is tangible, requires most of the senses, including smell. The other is the ability to revel in memories – a pastime increasingly difficult as one ages, without repeated diagnoses of dementia and worse.
Sod it. Too many words, asking for a TL:DR. I had all sorts of ideas for this post, but really, it’s just about photographing steam trains.
This post has been hanging around for a couple of months – it’s not time specific, has no urgency and has just been waiting for a gap in the DearSusan schedule. That’s now allowed me to update it with two more shots from just a few days ago (27th October).
End of text. If you’ve an interest or want to know more, make a comment here and I’ll happily reply.
Otherwise, here’s some lineside fun shot with either the Fuji X-Pro 2, or the X-H1 body, 16-55 zoom, 100-400 zoom and 35mm f1.4 prime. I also used my Nikon D800e and 24-70 zoom on some of the original images shot at Ceres.
