"look a train!"















When Daniel was younger he was obsessed with trains. At the time, we lived in a small town that had two train stations. We´d often get on a train at one stop and ride it to the next one. I think he had more fun riding that train than he did riding the rides at Disneyland. A few years later we moved to Vitoria. Here, we´d head to the station after school, and while eating his snack, he´d guess where the trains were going. (Great way to get a four year old to eat all his fruit...) For the longest time he only wanted to be a train conductor. Now it´s a toss up between professional tennis player, architect, and chef...

My oldest son was train obsessed also, for his first few years of life. How old is your son now?

Jane, I love, love these pictures and the way you captured a different view at the station. Trains and little boys sure add a smile to ones day. 13 and 15 yrs can be fun years as they continue to discover things about themselves.
Have a golden day! xoxo

Daniel...13? Impossible! I think you forgot to add professional golfer to Daniel's future career list...I hope he still has that squeaky little adorable voice...

it's sweet to see Vitoria through your eyes, Jane!

yes, those blues in your photograph looks so amazingly...blue. And the charmingly florid architectural details and 'vernacular' slow life down to a soothing, meditatitve lull.

Hey Kim! Thanks! I use a Pentax( I´m one of the last few...) with a 100mm lens. My hausband had just given it to me and I was trying it out. Only could get a few pictures in before someone told me I couldn´t take any pictures! I got lucky. Big hug!

I knew a girl who was blue. So she painted her world pink. xoxo
