This is the first time in a while that we’ve had a photo display at the Railway Modellers’ Meet. Consequently, the organizing committee decided to task ourselves with ensuring there is something to see; we each need to bring something. This is not a problem for someone like Marc Simpson, who not only knows how to fill Facebook with news about the meet, but also takes photos like film is free. I, however, don’t have the patience to sit around waiting for real trains to show up, and I don’t have much finished layout. So, not many nice photos yet.
Anyway, I like to show fresh work. So, I got out the tripod and three boxes because the tripod is too short to see onto the layout, and I framed the macro lens through the opening in the roundhouse. It took a few minutes following some excellent instructions to add some atmosphere to the roundhouse. Then I played around a little more to add a person, who I found on Flickr. I’m not much of a Gimper, and so, I had to feel my way a lot before finding something that didn’t look too bad.
I’m of two minds about the dude, and I’m curious what you think. Should I include him or not?
