This photo was taken a few years ago now at the annual Magnificent Motors show in Eastbourne.  Part of an ongoing project, well actually crossing over two projects really "Environmental Portraits" and "Man and Machine" (more details on my website). These guys are part of the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway, and appear at most local events, and are always popular with kids and parents alike.  Incredible that each of these miniature locomotives are completely hand built.

Night Train

Night shot with light trails from a passing Southern Rail train taken down at St Leonard's at the end of last year. For me the main draw is the urban industrial nature of the building on the left, with the street lamps running up the center of the shot, of course the timing of the light trail created by the passing train is a major positive for me creating some additional atmosphere and the all important sense of dynamic movement , the coastal aspect of the sea to the right and the rising moon in a cloudy sky - finishing touches.  As you may realize I am reasonably pleased with this photo. There is one element that annoys me, but I wont share just yet what this is. As always there is something that says to me "must try harder", and just not quite the perfect composition it could be in my eyes.

This photo was taken last year on a holiday to Mallorca at the train terminal of Fornalutx.  This was part of a journey to Port Soller. The best way to get to Soller, it to catch the train from Palma De Mallorca to Fornalutx, and you then take a tram down to the Port. A real highlight for us, and well worth the trip. Port de Sóller is a beautiful village and the port of the town of Sóller, in Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands, Spain.  Along with the village of Fornalutx and the hamlet of Biniaraix they combine to form Sóller.
