January has me starting off in a creative slump. We (photographers) have all been through this from time to time. I take great pride in finding different things to compose, shoot and process. It’s hard here. Richmond has much to offer yet I feel as if I’ve covered it in it’s entirety. I often look outside the city - the country, the river, the mountains. My son has a fondness for trains and anything that has to do with them. We headed out and ended up walking the tracks adjacent to Riverside Drive, under the old Atlantic Coastal train bridge and enjoyed a few hours of exploration and crisp Winter air. Although simple in orientation, I’ll never grow tired of shooting these tracks for they produce interesting leading lines and texture.
