Jerry Go and Oil That Car

This week is turning into a week of leftover posts! Sometimes I don't like photographs after an initial edit or end up liking a different set more and post things out of order. These photographs kept getting pushed around and now they're quite off season for the current weather! Anyway, remember this old abandoned train car? It's an old food car complete with dusty seats and decaying kitchen. You can see some older pictures I took in it here and here. From the outside they just look like rusting out trains, but when you get inside you have these lovely seafoam walls and interesting design details. They're not quite a romantic as the vision of trains you see in movies from the 50s (North by Northwest comes to mind), but there's still something intriguing exploring inside them...despite the terrible graffiti. It's also hard to believe that I was wearing this just a few weeks ago--bare legs seem like ancient history. I'm a sucker for little pleated skirts though, I want one in every color and they're classic no matter the season.

"'Twas in November, 
in the winter time, 
An' the ground all covered wid snow, 
'Come, put the hand-car-r on the track, 
An' over the section go!'
Wid his big sojer coat 
buttoned up to his t'roat 
All weathers he wud dare 
An' it's 'Paddy Mack, 
will yez walk the track, 
An' Jerry, go an' oil that car!'"

The setting here is fantastic. I just saw someone else's photoshoot in an abandoned train car, and I remarked to my boyfriend that I would love it if there was something like that around here. I really like the simplicity and classic style of your outfit; I think the pop of orange really brings it to life.
