As you can tell, I was in the car at the time...AND...I was actually driving! But in my defence, I had remembered before setting off (to Valencia to pick up Kirsty and her friend, last week) that when travelling on the 'coast road' as opposed to the motorway/freeway, I had often had trains pass me...and that on the outskirts of Valencia you actually pass a train station, at which there was sometimes a train standing. So I took my trusty P&S out of my bag and kept it handy on the passenger seat.
I had actually forgotten all about the trains, when I saw one stopped at a light on the track....I knew it would eventually start moving again, and I was on the stretch of road where the rail line runs parallel to the road for a good few miles...fortunately it's not a road on which people drive very fast, so I was primed and watching in my rear mirror ..and yay! here it came. Left hand holding the steering wheel, eyes still on the road and P&S in right hand, I just started clicking...and was pleasantly surprised when I looked at the results later!
As I approached the station outside Valencia, I saw there were trains sitting at it and grabbed the camera again...just in case I hadn't actually caught anything previously!...and snapped this on the way past
Today I have fingers crossed for an angel and a hammock...though I won't have to be doing so out of the car window (hopefully!)
How's your scavenging going? I'm really enjoying what people are coming up with for the prompts!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
