Georgia and I had a ton of fun on this part of our shoot. I know it’s kind of a blogger norm to take photos on train tracks, but as a tripod-self-photo-taker, it’s hard to do them alone. Plus, I never know when the train is coming.
We were listening for trains the whole time we were taking photos on the tracks. Since neither of us currently live in Dexter, we weren’t sure when the trains come by (we went to high school together). I used to work at a restaurant right by the tracks, but that was four years ago.
When we finished the photos on the tracks, we walked to the old station building (Dexter is no longer a station for any trains- you have to go to Ann Arbor to get on/off). A few minutes later, an Amtrak train (#37!) came flying past. It was kinda hilarious and scary at the same time. If we had been on the tracks we would’ve have to jump off! So, thankfully we weren’t on the tracks at the time.
