“The Trained Eye series began in October of 2000 as I wandered in the railyard near downtown Colorado Springs. All of these images are from the sides of boxcars, coal cars, miscellaneous freight cars and a caboose. These cars have been scratched, gouged, painted, scraped, rusted, and repainted over the course of their lifetimes. From a distance they appear uniformly colored, neat, and tidy. But, up close, with their context removed, they have become the gallery you see here.” I’ll let you find your own favorites among these achingly beautiful photographs. Thanks, Jerry.
