A day on the foliage train

After spending an intense week at the Missouri Photo Workshops learning how to craft better storytelling images, I felt like photographing this Sunday feature was not only easier, but fun. I knew what I needed to get to craft a solid little story, and was ready for unexpected moments, like when Lucy stopped to tie a passenger's shoe. I'm excited to see how the workshop will help my longer term stories, but for now, I can see the difference in my monthly stories.
