Hey all
 
Does anyone here ever photograph and include people in their railroad photographs as a subject? If so, I'm curious to see other works out there.  
 
I do everything I can to try and include people in the photographs, for the purpose of evoking abit of emotion and to make for a really compelling subject. Here is an example. I believe this is more of an important subject than locomotives and trains themselves.

Fair enough, I've altered it accordingly.  
 
The second one (Replaced) was quite well received back here  
 
This new one, coming soon, is from a set of Black and White which I photographed and developed upon returning here.

Thanks all for the feedback.
 
 
I was hoping to encourage all of YOU to post your People + Trains photos online! I'm curious to see how other people go about it.

Hey Les…The photo was taken during the early 1960s at the East 33rd. Street station on the Jersey Central Lines at Bayonne, NJ. The train is westbound from the terminal at Jersey City where most of the passengers probably boarded. This shot was taken during the evening rush hour at about 5:30 PM. Bayonne was an important commuter stop and during this time period had three stations along perhaps 4 miles of track. At 33rd. Street there were a few industrial facilities as well as the Bayonne Navy Base. It was a busy place. Thanks for your interest…Tom
