This week’s random image is of Bob-omb tagged on an abandoned train flat car that I saw while passing by on my way out to Rockwall County for some rural exploration.

Where to Find Bob-omb Sighting in Rockwall, Texas
About three years ago I was doing a little exploring in Rockwall County and as I came up I-30 east into Rockwall, I passed by the abandoned Train flat car. It use to be off to the right of the highway near the lake, on extension of abandoned track. Everytime I drove past the old train car , I would always looker over the train car to see if its changed somehow.
For the most part it never changed. It sat there for almost a decade with very little vandalism. It surprising that no one has really messed with it. But this last visit was different. I came across the Bob-omb tag on the train car. Sadly a week later the car was removed.
Bob-omb Sightings in North Texas
Bob-omb Sightings can be seen through McKinny, Texas, Deep Ellum, Dallas Texas, Austin, Rockwall, Rowelett and few other places. No one knows who is doing the tagging, but its fun to look for the tags and document them. If you happen to see more or know where more are, please contact me with a location. I want to photograph and document them before they are covered up!
About the Image
I took this shot by hand with my Sony Nex-3N and Sony SEL55210mm 4.5-6.3 OSS Lens, then processed it with Adobe Lightroom to crop, straightened, and remove dust spots from the image. Then I post processed the image with Topaz Labs Clarity to add more texture, remove shadows, boost brightness and contrast. I then used Topaz DeNoise to remove noise from the image.
