I had a great bench and even better conversation today with an old friend of mine.
We discussed social media and it’s impact on freight culture. As well as a “benchers” role or impact in the culture. We agreed that it’s funny what gets liked or how many likes a specific writer gets.
Personally I could care less about likes and would never use likes as a standard to judge graffiti or a writer. For me it’s about your longevity, growth, progression, and respect on the lines. My buddy jokingly said “the lines don’t lie” and It’s true if your out on the lines chasing trains documenting and passionate about it rather than scrolling on a feed that’s biased and in many cases posting for likes you’ll see whose up, you’ll see the history. These boxcars tell a story, every line is a chapter in a long long book. Take the time to read the pages.
