From a Moving Train (on a rainy day): Part V

Well, I’ve indulged myself long enough, I think, with my experiments from my rainy day on the train. I could go on and on, but it’s about time to move on.

Almost. 🙂

Of course, I took lots of shots of graffiti.  It was great fun trying to catch the full shot of the images and words I was seeing while the train was moving. With the iPhone there is very limited control, and you just have to concentrate like mad and hope for the best with your timing. I was completely hooked once I started. While the images themselves aren’t all that great, I had a blast trying to collect them. And I did manage to snag quite a few, once I got a feel for the timing.

I’ve chosen to post these two images together for their combined message:

Skrew

Drama

“Speak softly, but carry a big can of paint.”

Banksy, Wall and Piece

Lullaby near the Railroad Tracks

by A. E. Stallings

Go back to sleep. The hour is small.
A freight train between stations
Shook you out of sleep with all
Its lonely ululations.

Through the stillness, while you slumber,
They trundle down the track,
Lugging cattle, coal, and lumber,
Crying, “alack, alack.”

It’s cheap to pay the engineer:
The moon’s a shiny dime.
Shut your eyes and you will hear
The Doppler shift of time.

The hour is small. Resume your rest.
Tomorrow will be kinder.
Here comes a freight train nosing west,
Pulling the dawn behind her.

The Train

by David Orr 

Not that anyone will care,
But as I was sitting there
On the 8:07
To New Haven,
I was struck by lightning.
The strangest thing
Wasn’t the flash of my hair
Catching on fire,
But the way people pretended
Nothing had happened.
For me, it was real enough.
But it seemed as if
The others saw this as nothing
But a way of happening,
A way to get from one place
To another place,
But not a place itself.
So, ignored, I burned to death.
Later, someone sat in my seat
And my ashes ruined his suit.

Atticus at the Window

While I’m changing gears ENTIRELY after my ice and pond photos, I thought I’d try posting some photos that I take with my iPhone 4S, just for fun.  Up until now, I’ve been using the Panasonix Lumix LX5, which I’m crazy about and will still be using.  Now, I also have the Panasonix Lumix G5 (woot! woot! thanks, Dad!). I will eventually starting posting images that I take with that camera, but in the meantime, here is my sweet bunny-tailed kitty, Atticus (taken with my iPhone):
