nothing special just from today.

 

The lines are shut for the weekend for rail work, meaning theres 5 miles of wagons parked up through my town! i could literally just go into the station and paint in the day.

 

Too cold tho.

 

This also means the passenger yards are packed to the brim

 

;o)

wat camera you using?

 

how do you take those shots with the train going real fast?

 

Something called delayed exposure isnt it?

 

Can most cameras do that?

I have a Panasonic DMC FZ5. FOr those night shots you have to have a camera that has an adjustable shutter speed. Those two were roughly 1.6 second shots, with long exposures though you need a tripod or something really steady to balance the camera while the shutter is open becuase it will all come out blurry otherwise. The camera that I like to do night shots with is my manual SLR because film giver you better images, more crisp.

that's becuase no one paints them there (as far as I can see) enough that there's a scene. Just give it 5+ years, your cleans will die off and freights will be the only thing left to get around on. Welcome to North America in 95
