Train Cars. Vintage Thingies Thursday & A Thousand Words Thursday


Thursday is a little different around here. I like to take A Thousand Words Thursday to a different level. I like to challenge you to look deeper and to really see a thousand words. Not only see them, but write them! Let the image carry you away. Let it tell you who the characters of the story are. Let it tell you when and where and perhaps even why. As adults, we tend to stop writing creatively even though we are so capable. Give it a shot. Grab a pencil or sit down at your computer and let this photograph guide you. Tell the story. It may be a few lines, or it may be several pages. Just let your creativity drive you!

  13. Great photo. I've always lived close enough to railroad tracks to hear the sound of the wheels on the rails or the whistle as they approach a crossing.
