the photo challenge at the Russell Depot Park

the photo challenge at the Russell Depot Park

Russell, Kentucky

This past weekend I participated in a photo challenge hosted by our new local photo group.  The challenge was to produce interesting images at a very small park in our town.

This area would be called a micro-park in some parts, it consists of a parking lot, the old train depot, a defunct railroad building called the RU Cabin, a small fountain, a caboose, and landscaped brick walkway with pavers engraved with railroaders names on it.  In addition, someone had left out a very old rail pushcart of the sort you’d use to move luggage around on.

We had a fair amount of participation, I would call it a success.  The park is interesting for the fact that you step out of your car and think there is not a photo to be found but then as you spend time, they appear all over the place.
