I really do not understand the true reason why I am fascinated with railroad tracks and trains. I photograph them often. When I first started serious photography, I gravitated toward the railroad tracks peering deep in both directions and listening and looking for an approaching train. Many times, a train would come even when we were out in the countryside. Almost seemed trains gravitated towards me. Tracks and trains, perhaps, means going somewhere to various destinations in the symbolization of life.
This photography journal contains five years worth of photography by Preston and I. We started out together, during the winter time in the brutal cold, diving into serious photography and we traveled throughout Kansas during all the seasons in those five years. We posted our first photos on January 3, 2008. We have seen many destinations on our photo journeys and changes in our lives. Some destinations were unknown or unclear and eventually trekking and meandering along the tracks of life, we would arrive somewhere. We see life through our own perspectives as well as the lenses and the photographs we share. It is time for a change.
This photography blog will be turned into an archive for our photography 2008-2012; in which means, we will no longer post here. It will be renamed Kansas Photography Journal Archive. Preston and I will be posting our photographs at our main site, Surface and Surface Photography, in which will be the new Kansas Photography Journal. The URLs will remain the same; just the names changed. We hope to see you there in the New Year 2013.
Thank you to all those who have come here to comment. We very much appreciated all shared.
Happy New Year and Many Blessings,
Anna & Preston Surface
