train with graffiti

This week’s theme is “original.” Here is some “original” art work on a train car chugging up the banks of the Mississippi River in Bettendorf, Iowa.

Photo taken with the Canon Digital Rebel XT / 350D and a Sigma 70-300mm Lens on September 22, 2007 in Bettendorf, Iowa.

    Very original, there won’t be another quite the same. And it’s really not unpleasant.

    Dragonheart Says:

    That is definitely original! The photo is great, but the graffiti itself isn’t terribly attractive, IMO.

    My original photo.

    I’m so glad that I blogged your spider photos because it was then that I found that you had moved! And if I hadn’t learned you moved, then I would have never seen this. I could spend hours here and I expect to try! Your spiders are now blogged, it is the 2nd post from the top. This train car photo is superb, too. See you in the future!

    I love this! I have lots of photos I’ve taken on my walks and hikes of graffiti. I always have myself in the picture, looking as if I was the one doing it. I take it into paint program and paint a brush or spray can in my hand, LOL…

    Moe Says:

    Sandy – That’s hilarious! It would have been a little dangerous for me to run alongside the train and try to be in the pic ;)
