The Country Ghost Train

I have been embarking on a new type of art recently. I'm not sure what it's called. It's a short, tiny burst of visual imagery, highly produced, created with the sole purpose of envoking a sense memory. I just wish I could add aromas and then I'd have all the senses covered.

The following video is my first attempt at this. Growing up in Oklahoma, I always fell asleep to the sound of a distant train. This is a portrayal of that ghost train. Since my house was a half mile from the railroad tracks, and I was usually tucked into bed when the train passed, I never got a chance to see it. I just heard its call, bellowing deep from within the country, as if it were the night itself. Making this little film made me realize just how much I love the sound of a distant, evening train.

I have added this video to my new Flickr photo account. If you'd like to check out my photos, just drop on by my Flickr Page.
