Saw this photographer shooting this family across the street from my studio. Found it hard to believe that they allowed the photographer to put this baby on a busy railroad track. Train comes through about every 10-15 minutes. What some photographers won't do, I could just see this family proudly displaying this photo on their wall :rolleyes:. They had to quickly move the baby and chair off the track because a train was coming before they got the shot, then they quickly set back up.

It is actually illegal to do this; call the cops and show them your photo.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

They probably found this person on Craigslist. Not only are they breaking the law and trespassing, but the person seems to not even know what they are doing. Harsh light on the face and absolutely no scrim or reflector to help with that...
Usually their are signs all over saying not to go on the tracks and that violators will be prosecuted.

OMG - Someone should talk to that photographer - I hope she has some good liability insurance - 5 people on active railroad tracks. I really really wish this railroad track photo trend would end!
Looks like she has a cute chair - no need to risk peoples lives - take that chair to a park and she could get some excellent photos - I don't even get it - who sits a baby in a chair on the rr tracks? Scary!

Doesn't even look like she has good light for the photo - harsh lighting, move that great prop chair and the baby to some shade!

Ratjack, looks like we were posting at the same time - same thoughts!

I hope this is a joke because the more I look at it, the more frustrated I get with the RR track photos.

If it wasn't for the child, I'd say just let Darwin take care of things.

Omg! This photo is disturbing

I actually can't believe that..... And there's shadows on the babies face from the parents too... So many things wrong but they should just not be there...
I hope they didn't pay her for that unprofessional rubbish

I guess I'll be in the minority and say it's probably just a family taking pictures and she isn't a pro as some of you are shaming her to be. Not everyone with a DSLR is a "pro".

Are they stupid? Of course. But I believe you guys are acting too harshly against them. It was probably a one time thing. No need to call the cops as some of you suggest. As if none of us have ever done stupid acts in our lives.

Sheesh.

My two cents.

Photographic evidence that you failed at parenthood.

So much judgement and condemnation while nobody got hurt. I think it's actually a pretty original concept.

Usually it's a model in caution tape dress...

Peer pressure to conform to safety standards is justifiably called for in this instance.

As a person, parent, photographer and railfan, this picture shocked me. My stomach literally ached when i saw this! All attention is on the baby, not one of them is looking miles away, not that it would justify this situation.

I was on an excursion trip one time and a passenger climbed between cars, under the couplers. The volunteer staff manning the train required him to sit at the end of the car under watchful eye for the entire day. This man was about 40+years old. Everyone had been told expectations of behavior in clearly written terms, i.e. "Do not walk between train cars".

I wouldn't wish these people to go to jail, but a good talking to by Police .....

Original? How many examples of people standing on rail tracks would you like me to post to you, because I could find 1/2 a dozen on this website alone

So extending a cliche even farther makes it less cliche?
