Afternoon Freight Train

Freight TrainA recent trip to Historic Downtown Greensboro, NC provided this photo opportunity. Elm Street, with all the quaint shops and restaurants was an ideal place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. We parked near the railroad tracks and I shot this image soon after we arrived. An early dinner/late lunch at Natty Greene’s (Pub and Brewing Company) was enjoyed before walking around town. Lots of photos were snapped and one or two more may make an appearance here in the coming weeks.

Shot with my 24-105mm lens at 65mm, ISO100, f4.0. Processed with Nik Silver Efex Pro software and Photoshop.  View Large.

  7. Thank you for bringing us to this beautiful place. Elm Street seems like a place you want to just chill, have a wine or coffee, savor the charming sceneries, visit shops, talk to people, best of all, get amazing shots like this train. Love the BnW effect, it enhance the depth of the subject. Just stunning…best wishes to you and your family.
