In late June and early July of this year, I did a three part series on operations around Pecos, Texas in the 1970 and 80s.  The series proved to be a very popular set of postings with hundreds of views.  Here are the links to the posts–Part I, Part II and Part III.  On July 21, 2014, 81 views were logged for this series on a single day.

As B. Smith was capturing the rail scene around Pecos, Texas in the 1970 and 80s, he did something really great–he drew the rail scene as well to give context to his superb photos.

Making maps such as these often provides valuable information to give your photos context and aid modeling and realistic operations.
