Yesterday was a beautiful day in Rockport, the sun was out and the air had a nice clean chill to it. I was headed to the hardware store which is next to the train yard so I thought I would bring the camera along. I had not used the Leica 21mm Super Elmar in a while so I put that on the M9 and headed out. The first thing I noticed were the brand new engines hauling the commuter trains. This was a revelation since I had not heard they had made an upgrade. These new engines have a modern look to them and had many new lines and angles to explore. I just shot a couple of them which are below. I am fascinated by the old crane that rots away in the yard right next to the trains and I know at some point I will spend some time with it before they decide to haul it away. I used a Tri-x grain and look to the crane photo which ads to the gritty old time feel. I made some images of it and one of them is presented here. The sky had plenty of clouds to exploit which I did using Silver Efex Pro when I processed the images. I explored for a short period of time with the wide angle but I did not have any other lenses with me so I had to pass up several opportunities. I have always loved the wide angle look but at times you really need something longer like the 50mm or the 90mm to separate out details that make great abstract images. Here are the images from the shoot.
