Too Close For Me.....

  1. Good grief!

    It looks like a very nice, attractive, well kept home. But even so, could you live there?

    Fabulous shot Alan. Great use of the new lens!
     
  2. Very nice PP. Well done.
     
  3. Thanks, Peter. I would not want to live that close to the tracks. That train was barreling down through there, too.
     
  4. Thank you, Alex....

    Couldn't pay me to live there!! Way too close, and can you imagine how many cracks must be in the foundation??

    That said, excellent photo, Alan and PP is straight on!
     
  6. People can get used to many things, but living like this?

    No way, one of my friends lives roughly, 50 yards from a set of tracks, his house shakes every time the train passes. I would think the house in your pick would violently shake.

    But your photo is great, another one to add to your great collection.

    Nice image. It would be uncomfortable to live there but I'd adjust.

    I'll Take It! Great Photo & PP Alan!:smile:
     
  11. Great image and PP!
    Evocative.
    I used to know a house that was about as close.
    The lady who lived there had been in a train accident as a child. She lost an arm and a leg.
    Still lived so close to the tracks. Imagine that.
     
  12. I appreciate you all for looking.
     
  13. Really beautiful processing! Nice one, Alan.
     
  14. Thank you, dossy.....

    For a rail fan, living out in the hills with a railroad that close would be.... almost heaven!
     
  17. No doubt. Thanks, Vinny.
     
  18. Folks like what they like. Thanks for looking......

    Wonderful shot, Alan! The clarity is such that it could be two photos stitched together. Wonderful lights, especially in the house railings. Great feeling of motion.

    The proximity is scary. I once lived in a parsonage that was about 50 feet from a N&W mainline... coal hauling out of Kentucky for northern Ohio and Detroit. The noise was deafening when trains went through. The whole house shook and it felt like an earthquake every time. I was glad to move away!

    So, how long did you have to wait for the train to pass by?
