Making photographs, not just taking them – Dundee, Tayside, Scotland

National Railway Museum

Following on from the Flash Bounce blog I thought I’d share a few of the images I got from the trip to theNationalRailwayMuseum.  This is a place I always loved visiting as a kid and, as I love steam engines, I still feel like a kid when I go now.

Driving the Evening Star

Wow that's big!


Note: this trip has reinforced my want for a new lens, due to the low lighting conditions (and not being able to take too much equipment) I really need a lens that can perform better in these situations (preferable one that has constant f/2.8 to offer more flexibility).
