Dream Train Steam

Another "Dream Train," this one a vintage steam engine, (seen below in Cumberland Md.), set against the same clouds in Dream Train (Amtrak). Gimp2 provides the editing tools to accomplish this. Hope this is as much fun to look at as it was to produce. Posted by Picasa

Dream Train

A little help from GIMP and some happy snaps with my Oly Evolt 500 helped me achieve this fantasy shot of a train blazing through the sky. I am normally not into composite photo art, but this was fun, and I learned a great deal about layering, slicing and edits. You might recognize the background and the Amtrak engine from other pictures here. Posted by Picasa

Full front view of the San Bernardino Santa Fe Depot. Built in 1918, and restored to new condition in 2004. 57,400 sq. ft. of beautiful Mission Architecture, whose lasting beauty has been made possible by the SANDAG Group. Beautiful day to view this magnificent building! Posted by Picasa
