Black and White Wednesday: Back in Time

Yep, I took that.  And no, it was last week, not decades ago.  Crazy, right?  We were driving through this little podunk town (well, one in a series of podunk towns, really) between the coast of Virginia and our destination in Tennessee when we spotted trains randomly parked in a field beside the highway.  We saw a sign that read "Train Museum" and hit the breaks, nearly flipping our minivan to pull into the driveway.  Okay, so that didn't happen exactly, but we stopped pretty quickly since our Jack has to be one of the most locomotive-obsessed little people in the universe.  By chance, the museum was open and we got to poke around and actually go up into the cab of this beautiful old steam engine.  You bet yer britches (see, I've been in the country recently) we're going to plan our whole entire trip out to Tennessee when we move at the end of the month around being in Crewe, Virginia during business hours.



And yes, I realize this is BLACK and WHITE Wednesday, not SEPIA Wednesday, but I really like this edit too... I even made a poster out of it for the aforementioned trainophile.  Which one do YOU like better?

Enjoy the other photos or join in with your own at The Long Road to China!

You know what....I LOVE THE SEPIA ONE. It's gorgeous. It really is. What a great shot. Great composition, too!

I like them both...a lot! I think it is a great shot, you almost can't go wrong with either edit, but the sepia one gives is a different feel. Older maybe? Suits the picture though. Love it.

I was gonna say b&w until I really looked at the sepia . . . I love it! I think the warmth in the sepia makes it feel more alive . . . The composition is great!!

I'm a big fan of sepia toned photos. They're so old and romantic looking and warmer than pure black and white.

I love them both. The detail in the B&W is a little better so I guess I'll vote for that one. Don't you just love when you are on the road and find something awesome like that?
