Durand and his friend Nick Fisher like to hang out near San Francisco Caltrain railways, which are also excellent venues to take pictures of graffiti. They patiently wait for the trains to speed by and hit the shutter for a long exposure to get these amazing images. Durand uses both digital and film, but as of late he’s been more interested in film and shoots with a German medium-format camera, the Pentacon Six. He and Fisher have even placed a camera on the tracks to get an amazing shot of a train passing overhead, which is portrayed as two red lights shooting out from the tunnel.

The train-chasing photographer also works for Twitter and tweets as the everydaydude. You can see more of Durand’s photography at his website or on his Flickr page.
