Cool shots - would never have thought of taking the picture of the bottom of a railcar. I can imagine how much more comfortable it would be to take the mushroom picture. Laying on the grass, with the bright sun caressing your body. Then just closing your eyes to enjoy the warmth for a few seconds, becoming totally focused on the sensuous feel, letting your mind drift away. That is, until the rough, wet tongue of a friendly dog jars you back into the real world. Or until you wake up and realize you've been asleep for several hours and are late getting back to your office, where you've missed an important meeting and...

You are so right--it was a lovely warm but not hot afternoon, with gentle breezes--just right! But was not a dog that broke the spell. My very nosy cat had to check out why I was lying there.

The undercarriage of the train is a creative adddition to the challenge. well done.
