Long Ago, not so Far Away

For today’s Monochrome Wednesday post, I am sharing an image from a trip to Ely, Nevada in 2016. My friends and I drove over to Ely 3 years ago to tour the historic railroad facility and ride the train.

The photograph was actually taken on my phone in color – Motorola Droid XT 1080. Thinking about what to post today, I thought I would revisit that photo. You can see my original in the post about the Ely Trip from 2016.

Here is a bonus shot of the same engine not long before our departure for the ride.  These images just seem to capture that turn of the century feel in black and white.

I hope you enjoy these images again in monochrome.  Please remember that this post is in honor of Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Wednesday challenge.  Thanks for stopping by.
