There’s something great about getting lost and stumbling upon an awesome spot to photograph.
That’s pretty much what happened here. I was driving around, listening to Bambu‘s “Where You From” and came upon this train. The weather was perfect for me. It’s pretty much my favorite type of weather to shoot in. So, I walked around this and shot a few of these.
I enjoyed a lot about this spot. For one, I dug the difference between one side of the train and the other. If you know me, you know I also love the Los Angeles skyline, so the fact that you can see it here is icing on the cake. But there’s more in the details. Look at the graffiti on the side as you look out into the skyline: “Dying Is Fine.” Powerful. Depressing, but powerful. It makes me wonder who wrote that, why they did it and what they meant. Symbols like this always make me more interested in analyzing the images I shoot more carefully for those elements that can really make a difference. Hope they know living is great, though.
Here are more shots from this trip.
