Capturing the Magic of Model Trains at Brookside Gardens
Each year, Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD transforms their conservatory into a model train route that meanders through a festive holiday landscape. This year, the nostalgia was in the air as I watched the trains drive by miniature Montgomery County landmarks, such as the Cider Barrel, Little Tavern, and Glen Echo Park. It was a scene that I had to capture with my camera. I focused on photographing the entire landscape, as well as the tiny details. One of the train "engineers" even makes an appearance!
