Trains in Blue

I took my boys to TrainTopia here in Frisco, which is a miniature train museum. I thought it was a great opportunity to combine two hobbies, photography and trains. The best pictures were those that had the night lighting, giving everything the blue hue.

The layout cost about $1 million to build, and was done so by an oil man, Steve Sanders in his North Dallas home. It was recently moved to Frisco for the museum. It has quite a story and you can read more about it here.









 

Indian Chieftain

Another awesome discovery while driving through the Frisco Square last Saturday was this 2014 Indian Chieftain with custom paint job. The owner, Jim Graham, had no problems letting me take pictures and explained to Andrew that the paint had actual gold in it. I wish I had taken a close up of the gold, but didn’t know about it till we go home and Andrew told me. If you look closely, you can see it. The bike truly was beautiful.

I really enjoyed the opportunity.








 

Frisco Municipal Library

I’ve wanted to try some of these shots for a while. This one was in my mind’s eye, and Andy complied and made it come to pass. My goal was to have him stand really still, so that he would be in focus, while anyone else would be a blur. It worked.
