Not bad, just rusty

F&SM Stories

Over the weekend, during a trip to the East Coast, I got a chance to visit George Sellios’ open house for his wonderful layout, the Franklin and South Manchester.

I spent a little more than the 3 hours George was open (15 minutes or so) and he was a gracious host. Seeing the layout was incredible. George even gave me a signed copy of his book (to replace my dog-eared version!)

I have named the below album, “F&SM Stories”, after some of the smaller scenes I found myself photographing. It’s one thing that really struck me in seeing it in person — there are so many little stories to find.

To preserve quality, I have uploaded them all, uncompressed, to an album I have created on Flickr.

As this album is public, I have disabled the download function in effort to minimize re-distribution at lower quality. At Flickr, they are displayed in their uncompressed, original quality, in a large 2048 display size. This is a fantastic platform and I’m happy with the way they look. Here is a direct link to the album on Flickr:
