On Assignment: New Philadelphia, Ohio-Day Three

"Tracks of Tuscarawas County" by Wes Aldridge

I am exhausted. Today was long and rushing from shoot to shoot each hour really wore me down. I don't have much to say other than I am glad to be back on my bed at the Schoenbrunn Inn.

This photo was taken in a city called Denison, outside of New Philly. I thought it was high and time I put a good cliche photo subject shot up here. Train tracks fading off to nothing in the distance... there you go. It is simple with the leading lines formed by the tracks disappearing off and leading your eye to some place you will never find the end to.

The assignment is almost finished here. Tomorrow I must start shooting my first appointment at 7 a.m. I have a new assignment to shoot each hour, on the hour from then until 2 p.m. when I must start my drive back to the airport in Columbus. This will be difficult and grueling. It's only for those with true grit... and I am chok full of that, man.
