The Larger View

Norfolk Va

This is where I discovered the channel markers graveyard and shot my two posts, Retired Channel Markers and Channel Markers Revisited.  I wanted to share with our viewers the kinds of places I go to find really interesting shots.  One of my favorite places to explore is near the train tracks in any city or small town.  I have never been disappointed by the photographic treasures that live near the tracks!  When I decided to venture into this neighborhood, I had no idea that these channel markers were stored here. Now I want to find out their history! Stay tuned! I shot this through the windshield by the way so it’s not the greatest quality. I didn’t want to startle the man heading my way by jumping out and taking a picture. And yes I could probably jazz it up with some post processing but other images are already waiting for me there!

Retired Channel Markers

Some of you have already seen this on wabisabiimages.wordpress.com but I love this so much I wanted to share it here too. I stumbled upon this while exploring an industrial park in Norfolk, Virginia last week. It looked like a cemetery for old channel markers that are now resting among the trees. They make for rather elegant artwork and some of my favorite images I have ever shot.
