A Tribute to "the Ansel Adams of railway photography," Richard Steinheimer

A truly special man, railroad photographer Richard Steinheimer, died this month at his home in Sacramento. He was with his wife at the time, whom he met in the early 80s when she was working at the Sacramento Railroad Museum. How fitting!

His images are so beautiful, and his life should definitely be made into an HBO Special or a movie starring Clint Eastwood, or something equally honorable.

Read the full LA Times obituary here, and learn a bit more about the life and work of this rare breed of visionary artist.


It is summer. Soon, more to come on prevenient travel plans for the warm months...

    RIP Richard! And glad to see you have taken up writing again. Don't be like me.
