One way to leave town


If you need to leave Ocala, there are several ways to do it. You can drive, take a bus, a plane, or a train. If you opt for a train, this is the way out of town.

Nicely showing the perspective. This divides your composition into two halves, the blue and the white on top and the light and the shade at the bottom, I loved this composition!

That is the chicken said...

I think I would be quite happy to just sit at this station and watch the world go by...I don't think I'd want to leave such a peaceful place!

The bend in the rails adds to the great perspective of this image. I like the brownish tone everywhere in the photo.

Yes, there is human life! I can see a leg! Very nice shot. Do many people take the train?

Irina said...

A great advantage of train is that it's not affected by traffic jams!

I like the view of your plarform, it looks very cozy.

Jake: Nice shot of the station and the tracks curving out. Looks like we just missed the train.. Guess we'll stay! Happy Memorial Day Lee

Either people don't like taking trains, or people don't leave Ocala at all!

Love the different patterns and textures in this photo, and the almost monochromatic hues.

Also possible by plane? What kind of airport have you got there?

A nice shot of this empty railway station. It does look lonely, so I guess people don't leave Ocala:-)

I have a sweet spot for train station like this one...
Do you have those very long "merchandise trains" passing by?

Jacob said...

@ Marie-Noyale - Yes, sometimes we get very long freight trains, but not a lot of them.

Ocala doe not have trains and planes to get out of town. Only a bus, that is all...
