I had to drive into town today to collect my washing machine (it's a long story!) and on the way back I got a sudden urge to take a photo of the train tracks at the level crossing. I have no idea where this 'inspiration' came from.
Unfortunately, I didn't have the Canon with me, but I did have my trusty iPhone, so I spent a few minutes squatting down in the middle of the railway line, clicking away, and looking behind me every few seconds to make sure there wasn't a train coming.
There was a bloke in a highway maintenance van parked up by the side of the road. I'm sure he must have wondered what on earth I was doing!
I've got two shots that are good enough to share, but I'm not sure which one I prefer, so I'm sharing both. I prefer the overall composition in the first shot, but the second shot has more foreground interest.
I cross these tracks every time I drive into town, so I really must go back one day before the end of the project with the Canon.
