 It's Steamy Sunday!  I have been reading about a photographic technique recently and looking at some photos that utilize it and decided I wanted to try it.  This technique is called Tilt/Shift and originated from how the old view cameras worked that had bellows to focus the lenses and has to do with perspective in a very over simplified explanation.  You can do it today with specialized lenses which I don't have or in post processing in a photo program which is the approach I took.  Certain images look better with this process more than others.  I find images that have a central focus with not just sky in the upper part like a city shot from a tall building or a train as in this case with scenery all around it.  The effect makes the subject look toy like.  It shows up better if you view it large by clicking on the image.  It's just something fun that I wanted to try and share and do that was a bit different than my usual.  This is the Cumbres & Toltec train out in the scrub of New Mexico.
