Old Caboose

On our recent Vermont trip, we ate at a wonderful restaurant converted from a Victorian-era train station. And outside was a prime piece of local color: an old caboose resting on a rail fragment, possibly a remnant of the very line that ran past the depot in the old days.

And since an aged machine calls out for a sense of its own history, I applied a few Topaz filters in post-processing to bring the viewer back in time.

Topaz Adjust is probably the filter I make the most use of outside of Photoshop’s standard effects. If you’re interested in checking it out for yourself, click the link in the sidebar to find out more.

Exposure Data: ISO 100, f/13, 1/100
