Fave Photo 2015/CDP Theme Day


South Simcoe Railway, Tottenham 

January 1st is City Daily Theme  Day and this month the theme is "Photo of the Year."

How can  a photographer choose one favourite photo?  Impossible!! 

But this one I do love for many reasons. For one, I discovered this neat Simcoe Steam Railway, a heritage rail that my husband enjoyed visiting several times ( I kid you not! Photographers drag their families along to get the best shot even if it takes more than once or twice or more). And we dragged a few friends along too, even convincing them to take the short journey aboard the train from Tottenham to Beeton!

In B&W

Lately, I have been converting a few B&W photos for a future project. The South Simcoe Railway has made the grade.

Telling a photographer to pick their favorite shot is almost like telling a parent to pick their favorite kid. Impossible.

You did pick a great one though!

Have a Happy New Year!

Oh, I can hear you, visiting and revisiting, finding the right exposure in the most endearing light!
This was a great shot, no matter how one looks at it.

Happy New Year from Vienna,

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Excellent choice EG, j'adore the old steam trains! I know exactly what you mean about dragging friends along on photo hunting excursions, thankfully most are willing participants :)

Rose said...

This is one of those that I definitely like in B&W! Just seems to fit the subject maybe? However, I like either version. Love trains for some reason.

Jack said...

Beautiful, EG. The colored and the B+W are both great, in their own ways. I'm not picking!

Indrani said...

Both compositions are good!:)
