A while ago I had a fun photo shoot at Reef Steamers in Germiston. Reef Steamers is run by volunteers who, drive, clean, maintain and fix the trains. They do weekend trip to Magaliesburg.

Moving trains at a station... no...

Moving trains at a train shed… no…

I did find the signs a bit strange. One would think that it is obvious that there would be moving trains at a train shed…

Change is good

As a couple of wise people have said:

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” -Andre Gide, “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude“. – Maya Angelou , and “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer

So in these words of inspiration there have been some changes made to the site. The portfolio galleries have been updated, new groups have been added and of course lots of new photos. And there will be more to come…
