(Sep 3) Ran back to Cordwood Landing Park to see what the camera could do in extremely low light.

darkness and poison ivy surround you
Don’t be fooled. By the time I took this photo, I couldn’t see anything through the viewfinder.

the path grows dim
I can’t remember for sure if I had a tripod or monopod, but I think I did use one.

and the forest comes alive
By the time I took this photo, I couldn’t see anything on the LCD screen either.

(Sep 2) The long tyranny of August led into a short September, whereupon I had to move, yet again. As I write this, in February, it appears I will be moving again before summer, and quite possibly soon. I really don’t know why I bother packing and unpacking anymore.

back here again
I made a point to catch sunset at the train station.

It’s times like this that the camera shines compared to all of my previous digital cameras.

that might explain why I'm back here again
I’ve noted that I seem to be seeking out overhead views. This is inevitably a problem since I don’t have access to many.

In a bit of luck…

return of the commuters
A train was arriving.

camera, please ignore bright lights
Its lights turned out to be overwhelmingly bright.

more likely I'm too much of a wannabe to know how
Perhaps you just can’t film an oncoming train in twilight.

the lights, they're so bright!
When it got closer than this, the lights overwhelmed the photos.

Someone waiting on the platform probably means that same train is going to roll back into the station westbound in few minutes.
