Remarks & Notes 
Objects Are Closer Than They Appear A local moron stares down the crew of the oncoming Q619 instead of watching his footing as he tests his luck at getting across the tracks ahead of the fast moving train instead of just waiting or taking the safer route over the tracks on the overpass in the background. Attention, Attention While it may look like this photo was fabricated, it is entirely real. To prove that, follow my flickr link in the comments listed below for a complete set of images documenting this scene. As you can see, his shadow does move with him as he crosses the tracks and his reflection is shown on the rail as well. Sorry to burst the conspiracy theory bubble associated with this photo. Also the moon is not made of cheese, auto racks are not FEMA death trains, Elvis is unfortunately dead and the earth is not flat. Apologies Accepted
