Week 2 – 014/365
Yay, a full two weeks in and going strong. This time I took pictures regarding travel. Mostly on the train (once I was able to find out Amtrak doesn’t care if you shoot out the window with a DSLR). I know some trains ban cameras and will take a lens, battery or some part of the camera so you can’t take a picture.
Anyways, here is what I got with my DSLR and S60.
While taking other sunset images (not with this woman in the way) a woman approached me and suggested I stand at a different spot. Unfortunately, because of my luggage I couldn’t go up and down the stairs in a busy area, but I thanked her anyways. We got to talking and she told me that the best places in Long Island was in Montauk during the sunset/sunrise in the Summer/Autumn. This woman (we never exchanged names) apparently works in a hotel and is familiar with photographers coming in during these seasons to get photos of the beaches on the Atlantic side of Long Island.
We talked for about 30-40 minutes about photography, the earthquake in Haiti, airport security, family members with diabetes, and other topics before her train arrived and we bade each other farewell. Maybe in the summer I will head out to Montauk and find her hotel and take some pictures.
I took many many pictures, but not many came out. I tried KensaiGreenie’s suggestions, but some of the photos didn’t come out well at all. Some did, some didn’t but I put up my favorites of the bunch.
