photoblog image On the Watercress line

On the Watercress line

The fireman admiring his handiwork. Ange's cousin John was a railway firemen in his younger days and had a life long love of stream locomotives. so what better place for a final send off ?

 

Happy Birthday to Ginnie today

When I was about 9 years old I briefly flirted with the idea of a career as a Fireman...this fine posting gave me that pleasant recall, Bill, so thank you.
Bill Phillips: I wanted to be a train driver as a child but so did most kids!

Joli portrait !
Bill Phillips: Merci Martine!
great shot to the engineer Bill... the vignette makes the colours pop....petersmile
Bill Phillips: It was a stroke of luck the fire was glowing!
What a wonderful photo, Bill! Terrific light!
I love this song... but I prefer Mark Knopfler to sing it... his sad voice seems to suit it in my mind.
Bill Phillips: I have the Dire Straits version on Brothers in Arms but what an array of talent on this version!

Its a skilled job and a fine balance to get a good fire with enough steam yet not getting too steam that the safety valves lift. I like the glow on his face.
Bill Phillips: A good driver needed a good fireman
This is a very good photograph, good to see it is a relative.
Bill Phillips: I am pleased you think so Chad
A good way to go Bill.
Bill Phillips: It was perfect Michael
I think the vignetting works well here.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mary, it needed it
i like him looking at the flow which illuminates his face, Bill.
Bill Phillips: That was a stroke of good fortune for me Ayush
Excellent shot Bill, if that didn't win a competition then I would think the judge was blind! As for the video, great music.
Bill Phillips: Very kind of you to say so Brian
