Tuesday night scan-o-rama

I was out sick again today, and there wasn’t much on TV, so no movie reviews tonight.  But since I’m feeling better tonight, I decided to scan through some of my “reject” folders of slides.  I, unlike some other photographers, rarely throw away slides – I keep everything (unless it’s truly out of focus).  And it’s times like this that I’m glad I don’t toss the rejects.  Yep, I found a few gems stewing in there for a good 6 or 7 years.

Every now & then I break out one of the seven binders of seconds – stuff I didn’t consider at the time I shot them to be the top notch stuff, which exists in two binders aptly labeled “the better ones” – and check things out.  Most times I’m just reminded that I made the right decision and kept those shots hidden from view.  But occasionally, one catches my eye as the page crosses the light table.  Something I missed – whether it be an odd composition, or something that just isn’t around any more that was commonplace then.  I found four of those tonight.

First up is one from back on August 2, 2003 of Guilford train EDRJ pulling out of East Deerfield, MA.  Overall a not too bad shot – nothing special, but not sure why I didn’t let it make the cut.

Next up is from a little later that year – November 15, 2003.  This time it’s a shot of a former Conrail B23-7 that the Connecticut Southern Railroad was using as a parts source for the longest time.  Well, now that hulk has been scrapped and is now razor blades, or nails, or something that is not a GE locomotive.

And here we have a detail view.  Back in September 2004 I rode with the Central New England Railroad to do some photography & research for my first published article, which appeared in the November 2005 issue of Railfan & Railroad.  I got this shot as the crew was firing up the CNZR’s ALCo RS-1, and she was belching out some smoke, as all good ALCos do.

And finally, a people shot – one I’m surprised I missed.  This is from a ride I took on the Valley Railroad in Essex, CT with my wife & daughter on September 6, 2004.  It’s a simple shot of one of the Valley’s conductor’s chatting with the riders.

And that was it for tonight’s dive into the old binders.

Thanks for looking!
