Take Care.

My dad walks along the train tracks. This photo taken March 31st. We had been on a photoshoot on the waterfront that evening. He had wanted to get some good shots of the sun reflecting along the tracks.

Sadly this week, a young woman was hit by a train in this location. As she tried to photograph a train, she sliped on the wet track. She was taken to hospital but has since passed away from the severe injuries.
A reminder for photographers that sometimes the perfect shot just isn't worth the risk.

I agree, sometimes we will do anything to get the perfect shot and we need to think safety. Nice shot of your dad.
