I’ve been busy, real busy. So much so , in fact, that I haven’t gotten an opportunity to get out and chase steel very much in the last few months. Consequently there has been a distinct lack of posts from me lately. Hopefully that will change soon.

Besides working on “real world” activities, I have been working on enhancing my post-processing and graphic design skills. As an exercise towards that end, I wanted to combine two images into one “if only” image. I decided to merge a shot of a BNSF intermodal with a shot of a Union Pacific vehicle train.

Here are the two original shots I chose:

Here is the final image. I opted to include a shadow of “me” and titled the effort “Two Trains and Me.”
