Earlier in September, I attended a business meeting in Silver Spring, Maryland. Initially, I wasn’t sure how to get to Silver Spring from Hartford, CT; I didn’t realize that the DC Metro system goes to Silver Spring. In addition to the funny story that little journey brought us, that fact also meant that I could take AMTRAK from my home town to Union Station in Washington, DC. From there, it’s about a 20-minute train ride to Silver Spring.
On the way home, riding AMTRAK’s Vermonter, I snagged a window seat on the right side of the train (facing the water in several places). I hoped to get some good photos, but there were issues – more about that on Saturday – however, I did manage to snag a few doors. The photos have been cropped and cleaned-up in Lightroom, as best I know how. Despite a few marker photos, mostly train stations, I’m not really sure where many of the photos in the gallery were taken. I suppose I could compare the timestamp to the Vermonter’s schedule, but this is Thursday Doors, not CSI Thursday Doors.
Thursday Doors, by the way, is a world-wide weekly adventure by door lovers and their cameras, paint brushes, memories and thoughts. The program is supported by Norm Frampton and is open to everyone. Take the (virtual) train up to Montreal, to Norm’s blog. Check out his door(s) and then look for the blue button. Press the button to hop onto the Doors page. There, you can add your door(s) and / or check out all the other doors.
Enjoy the rail-side doors I was able to capture. I’ve described them as best I can, in their captions. You can click on any one of them to view them all as a slideshow (one of the nicest things WordPress does for us).
Thanks for stopping by today.
