Portal to the Past

I was out driving the back roads and as I drove across the railway tracks I looked to my right. The light was so perfect. I stopped in the middle of the tracks, rolled down the passenger side window and snapped a few shots. When I got home I tried a few different versions, one in color and one in black and white. They were both too busy, and as I looked and struggled, it came to me to combine the shots. The title came from the finished image. The railway is our past, as was film being in black and white.
