    Default The Legacy of the E. K. Railroad

    When I was a boy growing up in Ashland, Kentucky my father told me stories about an old ghost railroad that used to run in nearby Greenup county Kentucky in the late 1800s to early 1900s. I have since been fascinated by the subject and researching its history is one of my hobbies. I previously made a video about this subject many years ago, but decided that it was time for an updated version. Unfortunately, there are few surviving photographs from that era, and the resolution of those available are not too high, but with the current state-of-the-art in editing systems it's getting easier to creatively work with such visual artifacts.

    Well, that makes me happy! I wonder what Midnight thinks of this, cause I don't think he's partial to "slide shows" in videos?

    I think it needs a voice over.

    Maybe if it was a documentary and a bit longer, I would agree.

    To be honest I lost interest after 90 seconds. A voice over May have helped hold my interest.

    Thanks, but the last time I used it on a video Rembrandt Rob freaked out.

    Don't bring me into this... I liked the video!

    If it were a documentary it would need a V/O but I take it as a... (We'll have to invent a new genre) share-tainment. A bit of music, a few images, nothin' highbrow, just a somethin' to look at.

    For those of you under 30, have a joint first, then look at it. For the rest of us, have a scotch.
