So extending a cliche even farther makes it less cliche?

Having a baby does make it a different shot and the photograph ask a whole lot of different questions than your usual pretty girl on the railroad tracks. I haven't seen any picture like that before.

I don't know why everybody thinks that four adults can't assess the risks and liabilities to do what they do reasonably safely.

Yep. Safety is on every parents mind.

Personally I don't think I'd go as far as setting up a chair on the tracks as they have here at this place, but up in these parts people take pictures all the time on the tracks, it's quite common. The train doesn't come through often, but when it does you will hear it coming and feel it's vibration long before you see it. I'm in a rural area though, so no speed trains and such.

I live directly across from a track, I've walked it for years as well as taken many pictures of my dogs on it, as well as by it. Grand kids as well, but like I said ours does not come through often but you will know it when it does before you see it because it sets off the whistle and I can hear that a mile up the road.

You ever heard a train sneaking up on someone? I don't understand their concept with this setting, and it's not something I would have done, but I seriously doubt anyone is in danger.

Yet people get killed walking on the tracks every year.

Maybe not too dangerous, but "stuff" happens. The biggest thing is it just seems like such a waste of time, major technical mistakes, etc. Like I originally posted, this is across the street from my studio. I have seen this photographer shooting other people around town so they are probably finding her on CL or Thumbtack. What it boils down to is this:

Where in your house would you want to hang this, :rolleyes:?

How dangerous is this?

http://www.nydailynews​.com …-photos-article-1.1217517 (external link)

There is a restaurant we go to and the trains come by on a regular basis, you can see and hear them - they come FAST - - similar to the tracks in the photo - It comes fast...I can't imagine trying to get all that stuff off the tracks quickly. There are a few crosses there, hmm wonder what they are for?

I don't understand people defending this woman - it is dangerous and illegal.

I feel bad for the photographer - maybe next time you see her you should go out there and tell her that if she does not have liability insurance, better ideas for photos, and does not learn better lighting techniques - she will quickly be out of business.

Something's been bothering me about this for awhile now and I just have to ask; did you go warn them of the danger before or after you took your picture?

I don't think it's any big deal.

I've lost count of the number of times I've seen photos taken by people who had to trespass in order to get the shot. Nobody got hurt in those instances, and no one got hurt here, either. In fact, the OP even states that, when a train did come by, they got the kid out of there. So, it would seem as though there was a degree of caution being used. Some of you folks are acting like the kid was tied to the tracks.

Also, I'm willing to bet the photographer's not a pro, just based on how she's dressed. I don't know any pro who would show up at a portrait session dressed like that. More likely it's a family member with a camera.

My question to the OP, though, is this: If you were so appalled at the complete disrespect for safety and property rights, why were you taking pictures instead of calling the police?

Well, had he done that, he wouldn't have such a juicy photo to share on the internet...

Yep. Happened in my neighborhood when I was a kid. The trains were normally "coasting" on the tracks getting ready to slow down when they passed through the neighborhood so the ambient noise from the nearby interstate and the major blvd. pretty much covered the sound of the train.

Fair enough. Good point, and well taken. Gravity operated switching yards are another huge danger. I knew one guy that was killed on a gravity yard. He was trying to open the knuckle on one car and didn't hear the next one coming.

That's nothing compared to these complete braindead parents who let their baby crawl on the edge of a 600 meter cliff;
