I went to the Station square today and took some photos from our one and only steam engine we have here in Emden.
It used to bring up to 80 wagons loaded with iron ore for the steel industrie into the Ruhr district...
Not sure. I just remember, especially from the days of film, that locomotives, or other "big iron" objects, like a tank, always came out sort of different. I thought it was from the IR that your eye can't see, but was affecting the film.
Or maybe it was just the flat black paint jobs that all american locomotives seem to be painted in.
We have one here in town. Maybe I'll have to try and shoot it with digital and see what happens.
