Art and the Familiar

I really like this photo of the train in Strathroy, Ontario. I've driven through this crossing many times, but I've only seen the train occasionally. One day this Spring, on my way to pick up a friend who lives near the tracks, I heard the the train. At just the right moment I managed to jump out of the car and click the shutter.
Later I told my friend, "What a great photo I got of the train by your house!" He replied, "I don't want to see it! That train is always waking me up when I'm trying to sleep! I've had enough of that train."
So much for art.
Taken with a Diana+ toy camera, Neopan 400 film. Duotoned in the Gimp.
