Dale, this is beautiful. You have captured a feeling, not just a photo. It reminds me of going into the city (Pittsburgh)at Christmastime and looking at everything - and I mean everything - my parents would take us to department stores to look at the window displays, the miniature train show, the indoor aviary and topiary, the Carnegie Science Center, and everything had this lighting and feel about it. it was a magical time and for some indescribable reason, this photo brings that time back to me. Even though I never saw a fire truck during those trips to the city.

PS - I changed your title to include the word "Reflections."

Monkey and Cowboy, when I first looked at this picture, I could not figure out the title. I have been keenly interested in trains most of my life and I thought this was a restored train locomotive and that gear referred to all the rods and linkages on the wheels and steam cylinders. However, I couldn't see any of that gear in the picture. Monkey, your comment about fire engine caused the light to switch on and I was immediately able to see the firefighters gear in the ready mode.

It is a beautiful shot, even if you don't know what you are looking at. The depth of color is great. The shallow depth of field enhances this shot more than I would have thought possible. Great work.
