This spot is the bane of my existence. Every time the train comes in the wrong direction for the set shot. Today is no exception, so I try for the engines leading away through the S-curve. No such luck, the stacked containers block all view of the engines. Sigh, maybe thereíll be a pusher I think.
Low and behold there is! Thatís the lucky part
Trains gone and I lower my camera and it occurs to me Iím still holding a particular button Ė the focus lock button, which I locked while trying to get the engines but couldnít because of the high containers.
So my pusher is OOF! Thatís the stupid part.
Some days your good to be lucky and others, lucky to be stupid.. no wait.. ahh, I give up.
