The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

  1. straight out of the camera and straight ahead. like it!

  2. That is a great shot! I like train tracks pretty much anywhere...

  3. A well composed image John..

  4. Close-up view of the track itself gives an impression as if its a highway!

  5. Nice photograph John.
    Does it feel erie to lay down on the tracks for the photographing?
    I can see you putting this one in black and white.

  6. So straight! A well framed picture.
