It was snowing yesterday. I like it when the skies are grey and the light is flat. It is the perfect weather condition to create some strong graphic black and white images. So when I looked at the parked boxcars near the downtown parking lot my first intent was to make a  picture just of a very elementary composition of a line of boxcars. However when working on the image today I decided that the added colour just added just that extra component, giving the final result a stronger visual impact.

Nice, Mike. Simplicity sends a lot of messages.
Shades of Freeman Patterson's early work.

It's perfect example of minimalism. Photo touched me a lot.
