Trains: Photography of A. Aubrey Bodine. Jennifer B. Bodine

5 of 5 stars

Bodine has captured the timeless beauty of the locomotive. Trains is more than we expected, in fact. In particular, we enjoyed the aesthetics of those who are simply employed in this capacity.

Also, joyfully sprinkled through the images are macros. If you have never tried to photograph metals before, then, you may not realize how difficult it can be. The lighting has to be right, the textures have to be correct and sometimes, you think that you have a great shot.

Then, you blow it up in Adobe and it's just a big ol' mess. It's like viewing a Monet at an extreme close up, not realizing that this is not the best way to view it. Blech!

Trains is history. It is documentation. It is aesthetics.
