Works of Art...

The old locomotive and the nearby structure of golden gears and wheels are both, in their own way, works of art. Neither of them does any disservice to the other. The golden years of rail travel and transport would have been impossible without gears and wheels. Nothing sounded so lonesome as the whistle of the old steam locomotives as they passed in the night. In my mind, each piece is wonderfully unique, and yet go together beautifully. They are however, almost hidden from view by the surrounding trees, and I almost didn't see them at all.

Great shot - so different from black and white - the gold makes a nice link.

Krys and Paul,
Thanks for looking in again. You're right about the gold making a nice link. Gold/Blue; Gold/Green; Gold/Black all works for me. Dave
