Some subjects are so photogenic that they really have been done to death.. The world quite simply doesn’t need any more photos of steam trains, ruddy faced Casey Jones style loco-jockeys and cheeky-chappie conductor characters.
Why are conductors always cheeky-chappies? Is it a stipulation on the application form?
Are they told:
‘Yes, the jobs yours, as long as you can do a combined impersonation of George Formby, Arthur Askey and Norman Wisdom at the same time as you throw a fare dodger from a speeding carriage?’….I reckon so !
But I digress…
Yes, there’s already FAR too many of this type of photo, so I won’t be even remotely offended if you ignore this bunch completely. Luckily these traditional type trainy shots are the last from my days shooting in the Peaks, so tomorrow will be different.
Someone needs to cleanse and moisturise.
Casey Jones of the Peaks..A man obviously in love with his job.
