The Rail of Tears

Railroad Upper, originally uploaded by margotwood.

"The Rail of Tears" interesting title because this railroad has a sad story. Located deep in the woods of Ault Park in Cincinnati, this is the location where a teenager hung himself about 12 years ago. While I did not know this victim personally, he was a good friend of a friend of mine. That being said, what I like about this photo is the sense of calm it instills.

I took this photo at 6pm in March so the colors are all subdued due to natural lighting.

Post Process: Slight vignetting, lens blur on the bottom and top to create a shallow depth of field.
