SMALL TOWN AMERICA BY TRAIN
I just though I would share a few of the photos that I took from the train window on the trip down to NC. I love watching the small towns go by. You get a much better feel for where you are going and how you are getting there when traveling by train. It is such a different view than when traveling by airplane or even by car.
All too often when traveling by car these days we travel only on the highways. You don't se much that way. Definitely you miss the small towns or at least what is at their heart.
I do enjoy traveling by plane for long distances. Some of my favorite images are of flying over the plains states and seeing the patchwork quilt made from the roads and farm lands. There are so many wonderful patterns and the ground is so flat that it really does look like a patchwork quilt.
Lets face it I just love to travel. I dream of what it would be like being able to afford to travel and record my travels both in film and word.
I hope you enjoyed some of the small towns I traveled through. Can you hear the sound of the train on the track and the whistle as you go though the towns.....listen carefully, and imagine!
