Sounds~Sunday Stills Challenge 083009





This was a difficult challenge for me this week! I take lots of landscape photos, and my photos usually don't have people in them, let alone sounds. But, on this trip to Williams, AZ, the train to the Grand Canyon was at the station, getting ready to leave. People were boarding, after they heard the whistle. This is one of my husband's favorite sounds, a train. Both his father and grandfather worked for the railroad. Sunday Stills Challenge 083009.

This is one of my favorite sounds too. My grandparents lived in a house very close to a railway and I have the best of memories of my stays with them. Lovely old train this is too.

Cool train! Looks like it comes out of a storybook; so perfect. I can hear it, too!

Great job. Trains are a sound that have gone by the wayside in the past years. It brings back memories to me. Thanks for the memories - do you want me to sing that old song? That would be a sound that you would not want to hear. LOL
