i was talking to a sheriff last night over a cigar while he told me a story of a bum he found frozen to the train tracks and decapitated...apparently the bum thought steel was comfortable...i might agree in this weather.

short bum. He just lost his head and not his head and feet like you would.
And, way to schmooze the cops.
I'm no good at schmoozing the cops.

Keep the beard attatched to the rest of you. A train is no way to shave.

Ben, one of the best today. It looks like an image from long ago off to the right, but then on the left, the image is brought into the present so there's this cool discord. Then the faded color and converging tracks and whited out corners cap this off to perfection.

Amazing shot!

I like to imagine this as some sort of post-apocalyptic setting. Bearded man roughin' it like a lone wolf in the snow, making a bed out of iron. True manliness!

Still depressing, I suppose, but less so for the person laying on the tracks.
