Photos taken before the time of digital. Imagine only having 24 opportunities to take the perfect picture. Photography has taken a huge leap in popularity in the last few years – Mainly due to the fact that its become so easy with cheaper cameras, lens, and post processing to take a GREAT picture. You take a “good” picture and make it great with post processing. Back in “the day” you had to take a great pic right out of the camera.
Train tracks. Symbolic. How the lives of people can move parallel to one another but never touch, yet they are connected by moments (the cross wood/slats) that forever link them. Train tracks are like memories they go forward and backwards but don’t deviate. A symbol of freedom for slaves (The Underground Railroad) and in several novels, (Fahrenheit 451 for example). Just a moment captured in time that will go on forever, much like the tracks so.
