That’s a great classic image of the prairie. And the railroad. Iconic mid America. It says so much by showing so little. It works as visual geometry and as symbol. Very cool.

Thanks, Chuck, for immediately joining in the spirit of my intent with this image!

(I wish I had had the presence of mind to re-touch the surface of the rails with rust...but, in fact, regular traffic on the rails does keep them shiny !

Best,
Dave

Thanks, Min.

The bare simplicity of this image with its incredibly strong linear perspective was, of course, intended from the start.
A good example, IMO, of “less is more”.
It is, in fact, one of my personal all-time favorite images.
