I found some writing on one of the boxcars, but much of what had been written is rusted, faded or chipped:
This great, mysterious moon is the remains of what had once been a round sticker of some sort.
I really love this one:
During the last few years I've become obsessed with shooting and editing these kinds of photos. You could also call it an addiction, but I think those terms are too negative. I'd say it's a consuming passion, but that sounds a bit too lofty. In any case, taking photos like these is something I love to do. It's what I'd rather do than almost anything else. And the only bad thing about it is the time it takes. Time, and lots of space on my computer.
The hobby of photography isn't expensive, as it was when you had to buy film and pay for developing or darkroom supplies. Now you can shoot as much as you want and it doesn't cost a dime, but the mangement of all those images can be a bit overwhelming. I don't want to know how much time I've spent editing, organizing, uploading to share sites, and downloading to discs.
