Another of my photographic inspirations is David Plowden, whose quiet, lyrical images mask a smoldering complexity, more treatises than poems. Years ago, as the era of steam-powered engines drew to a close, he produced a series on that demise; today, as other forms of transportation have relegated train travel in the American West to little more than a novelty, the place of the depot has waxed to that of quiet nostalgia.
