Train of Thought
23 imagesThese images reflect the tedious, highly intelligent and fastidious nature of train spotting. So I used the zone system. I also wanted to time the images so a train is passing in the background of the shot. It is a misconception that all railfans are trainspotters. Many enthusiasts simply enjoy reading about or travelling on trains, or enjoying their rich history—this may extend to art, architecture, the operation of railroads, or simply modelling, drawing or photographing them. danny boyle "Through the late '80s in Britain, it (trainspotting) began to mean anybody who was obsessive about something trivial, and part of that is drugs. It's a very male thing. Women, they know better. It was a way in which men would conquer an area of life by just knowing everything about things such as all the Sean Connery films."
