An Old Train Through the Lens of iPhoneography

December 23rd, 2014|

New forms of art are not exempt from the old rules of composition. Old Train in Red White and Blue by Richard Lewis 2014 Recently I went to photograph some old train cars and decided to only use an iPhone camera. iPhoneography can inspire a more surreal and impressionistic view of old and abandoned things.
