If you want to see, you have to Look.
I like this, John, but I don't know why I'm attracted to signs.
A long time ago I went through a phase where I photographed exactly this kind of thing at various rail crossings. A few times I even went to the trouble of setting up a tripod and waiting for the lights to flash on, take a few snaps and then in photoshop, put them together so that it looked like all the lights were on at the same time. Seems weird to me now, that I went to that trouble but nonetheless, every time I see a shot such as yours John, I think back of those days.
