By the tracks (2)

Another picture I took of Joan walking along the tracks under M14.  She stopped to see where I was.  I had slowed my pace to take pictures of scenes and images as they presented themselves.  Here, I saw Joan standing at the side of the tracks looking back for me along the curve.

Same view as “View across the tracks” with a focus now on the tracks.  Strong iron rails that team with the wooden beams of the former station, the pavement between them, and the gravel under the tracks all making a series of parallels.  I carried over the black and white effect , but brought back the warm rusty tones of the second set of rails as they cut across the scene.

Across from what looks like a former train station, now converted to business offices, I like how the line in the pavement points directly to the center of the building.  I used a shorter focal length in my zoom lens to keep the width of the building in the shot, and it seems to lend itself nicely to black and white.  There are many parallel lines in the scene that the centered pavement line strongly points out.
