Dec 14, 2011. During my late lunch break (yes, it's dark, but the sun sets around 4:15 these days in Chicago), I wandered in the rain hoping for some photos to present themselves to me. I saw this tree at a pub next to the L tracks, and as I was sizing it up, I heard a train coming. I knew I had a shot coming up, so I put my elbows on the rail, composed my shot, and started a burst of photos as the train entered the frame. I like the front of the train approaching the tree top, but preferred the train being fully in the frame for my final choice. I hope you're enjoying your holiday season.
