Train Graffiti

Today’s post is another image from the train yard in Lawrence, MA that I grabbed last weekend.  The sky was gray and lifeless on this cold morning, so I tried to fill the frame as much as possible with the boxcars and avoid showing too much sky.  While these types of cars are typically non-descript, the graffiti can sometimes be quite interesting.  I probably would’ve passed right by this car were it not for the colorful artwork sprayed across its side.  A little Photomatix to bring out the textures, and Focal Point to draw the eye to the door, and I was done.

    Nice lines and focus fade, Steven. And the colors give a good contrast.
