Nice picture, but please be careful around railroad tracks. We're fond of saying "Expect a train on any track at any time" and modern locomotives can be exceptionally quiet. As photographers, we need to remember that people will often copy what we do, to try and learn a new technique. Again, it's a wonderful image, but please be careful.

Lisa Knechtel replied:

Great caution. Always have a spotter so if you are engrossed in the shot you don't get run down.

Ties That Bind Us


Lisa Knechtel




Today I took a walk down the railway ties in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. Looking down at the ties, I reflected upon how they came to be under my feet, uniting my country.

The CP Rail was built between 1881 and 1885 by thousands of navvies. On the BC side of the Rockies, the workers were Chinese coolies making between .75 to 1.25 a day to perform the most back-breaking and dangerous labour which amounted to practically slave labour. In 2006 the Canadian government formally apologized to the Chinese population in Canada for their treatment both during and following the construction of the CPR.

When will the first world countries stop taking advantage of the rest?
