When I was 15, my uncle Kenneth gave me a Minolta 35 mm camera, totally manual–even the f-stop. He loves photography and taught me to love it as well.
The first thing I wanted to do was shoot pictures of trains. So when my mom said she needed to go to Fed-Mart on Mykawa road across from a mouth into the Mykawa freight yard and near the crossover of the Southern Pacific right there as well, I was ALL in.
Here are some pictures of the first train I shot in 1978.
(Note: This is a little break from wiring on my layout plus I finally broke down and got a slide scanner! Expect a number of posts in the future of my rail adventures from 1978-1981. Lot’s of MP, ATSF, SP, Rock and many other goodies to come.)
Much, much more to come. I love the new scanner! We are going to have some fun with it! Meanwhile, back to wiring…
