Hon, the Lights Are Flirting with Me….
The railroad is a large part of Santa Fe and its history. In recent years Santa Fe has developed the Railyard area, including shops, galleries, the Farmer’s Market and a park. The main train station is in the Guadalupe District, which I love for its eclectic and historic feel. I even lived there during my first years in Santa Fe.
I still walk in the Guadalupe District on occasion, as it’s only 10 minutes from my home, and if I get there early in the morning, one of the railroad warning lights has the most wonderful expression. I noticed this about a year ago but only got around to shooting it last month.
So here you go…. does she look like she’s flirting with you? The way the early morning sun has shaded the lights to make them appear as eyes?
I love noticing silly things like this, and I hope this photo makes you smile and gives you a nice start to the week.
Taken with the 105mm lens at f/2.8, to get as much blur in the background as I could (and I knew the lens would be sharp where I needed it to be–those eyes).
