The local markets in Mexico open before dawn. Most are outdoors with tarps stretched over the produce to keep it fresh. I was fascinated with the drape of those tarps and the lighting caused by their translucent quality.
Engine and Engineer
Framed 20 x 27
In my youth riding trains was the best choice for travel. Going by car on dirt roads, usually muddy, was not great. However, there were many hours spent waiting for trains to arrive, affording many hours to watch the handling of the engines as they maneuvered equipment about the train yards. In this same cab space with the engineer pictured here, there would be a fireman who fed the flames by shoveling coal from the coal car which was part of the engine, essential to produce the steam to propel the engine and the train.
