Me Too!

Taking my cue from Alison, I finally caught a train!

Of course, when one is hurtling down the turnpike at 70 m.p.h. in a two ton tin can, one can't worry about things like focus or composition (particularly when one is in the driver's seat).  It is more like "point and pray".  I had several misses in the mix, but I did manage this one:

After cropping, straightening, and sharpening in PhotoShop, I had this:
A fairly respectable shot of # 5 on Rinda's Photography Scavenger Hunt list, a train.

Good job straightening out the train. Also congratulations on your bravery in getting the photo at all!

Well done, I like photos through car windows - you do have to pick the right moment though and it looks like you did!

Yes, I thought Alison's idea was good, too. You're on a roll with the scavenger hunt!

Love the way you've edited the train...but I must admit I could never drive and shoot....I'd be terrified.

Hurrah for your skill and determination! but I hope you'll be keeping two hands on the wheel from now on - my heart is in my mouth just reading about it!
