red light

I live in an area that if you don't use the Highway when you are headed East you have to cross railroad tracks. We used to have to do it 4 times a day from 96-08 now all my kids are out of MS/HS I am glad that those daily treks on the tracks are past but or some reason I like this shot -- not sure why- maybe nostalgia for those days:)

but while waiting for one train -- then another last week--we were first
in line so we took some pictures
I snapped shots of the light as it blinked first one side

then the other ..and snapped and snapped

till I got this coveted shot of both lights on
at once we never saw it w/ our eyes
but the camera's eye is so tricky quick
it caught it

( I know I am so easily amused sometimes:)

I really like the first one. It is the simplest and least cluttered. Really nicely captured. Have a great Rt.

Sounds like something I would have done too! I must be easily amused as well!

The lights look so much better in a photo than when I'm waiting for those trains! You have the best ideas for taking pictures.
