I could never stay long enough on the shore; the tang of the untainted, fresh, and free sea air was like a cool, quieting thought. ~ Helen Keller




More eye candy from my visit to the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, California. I got there late (just in time for golden hour but not in time to see everything) so a return trip is definitely in order. The free parking and admission have me wondering how they keep the place going. It’s huge!



Another shot from my visit to the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, California. Every now and then I return from a photo outing only to discover I like my iPhone images (often taken as an afterthought) more than those taken with my “real” camera. Surprise surprise. I’m not sure why but this is turning out to be one of those times. :-)


Still no power but here’s another iPhone snap from the train museum for you. There was a time when decay and dilapidation were my main thing photographically speaking. It’s been fun to once again explore the fine line between beauty and blight.


High winds, downed trees, and extreme fire danger have prompted Southern California Edison to cut the power off to our entire mountain (indefinitely so I’ve heard) as a preventative safety measure. I’m hunkering down for an Internet-free, iPhone battery-preserving day but before I sign off I thought I’d post an iPhone snap from my visit to the train museum. I never post from my phone so my fingers are crossed that it looks OK. Be safe out there, So Cal friends!
