I’d had the photo morning from hell. Camera sensor had some schmutz on it that appeared to show Sasquatch emerging from my local pond. The sky had no clouds and in my line of work, clouds make a sunrise. I had a case of fumble fingers that nearly deep six’d my 85mm lens. I decided to get in the car and get home before I was another news story of elderly woman mistaking the accelerator for the brake and driving up the side of a building.
But, I decided to stop at the railroad crossing and wait for the 6:05 commuter train to Boston.
I took the video but just moments before it turned the corner, I took one of the better photos of my sunrise series. Schmutz and all.
I love creativity. One minute you are in hell and in the next the 6:05 takes you out.
