Reuben Wells

Welcome to Classified Photos! I've been taking photos for a couple of years now with my Canon Rebel XS digital SLR and I've taken quite a few pictures to say the least. This blog is my way of sharing these photos with family, friends, and anyone else who may be interested. I'm always looking for different ideas and new ways to improve my photography. Hopefully this site will become an avenue for others to learn and spark new ideas for inspiration.

This is a photo I took not long after purchasing my digital SLR. This is the Reuben Wells locomotive at the Children's Museum in Indianapolis (click the link to read an article about why this locomotive is so unique). This is one of the best Children's Museums in the country. This is one of my favorite photos that I've taken from the many visits to the Museum with my family. I think there are two main reasons I like this photo so much. The first is that the train is just cool! The second reason is there no one else in the picture. If you've ever visited the Children's Museum here in Indianapolis, you know it is usually busy, especially in this area of the Museum. I was fortunate to grab this photo early in the day...before a lot of the students on school field trips invade the Museum! So now you understand why this was such a unique shot. If you ever have the opportunity, I highly encourage you to visit the Museum. Even if you don't have small children, you won't be disappointed. There is something there for all ages to enjoy.

 I'd love to hear your feedback on this photo, so please feel free to leave comments. Hopefully, this will be the first of many posts and photos that I share with you.
