Week 5 of 52 Weeks of Photography Themes
I have to say I am loving these weekly themes. It's so much easier than trying to come up my own ideas for photos.
I ran up to Dodge City over the weekend, by myself!, and being the the Queen of the Cow towns brought the railroad through this part of the state I found myself taking a lot of railroad themed photos.
Controls for the engineer and fireman on the inside of the cab.

Shooting the steam engine that sits out front of Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City was tricky because the sun was so very bright that day. I kept having to fiddle with my camera. My ISO was all over the place. Although I've always loved how bright it is in Kansas all the sun tends to wash out the colors in my photographs. But it's hard for me to shoot other than during the brightest time of the day.
