    Anyone like trains?

    These are actually miniature trains... yet, they are EXTREMELY real! This is one SERIOUS hobby for some. There's a park near here with tracks running throughout. These train hobbiests (I know that's not spelled correctly if it's even a real word ) come twice a year. There's a train yard where they work on them with raised tracks to preserve their backs. There's a tunnel, and a bridge... and some of them have cars with benches you can ride on. I really love to go see them every year. The detail just amazes me. And as you can see from the last pic... the adults enjoy them as much as the kids.

    Well... they're trains... they're not even real trains, but scaled down ones...
    The pictures are very nice though. Very crisp and colorful. I'm slightly envious of your 7D.

    And food is just food... and buildings are just buildings... but we post those. Seriously, they are cool little things just because they are so technically accurate compared to a real train... not to mention they do make good subjects for composition practice and for taking pics on excessively bright days.
    As far as the envy... I'm not convinced it's the best camera for the money yet. I'll decide after I pick up my new lens this week. It's got a lot of pros, but I've seen lots of Canons and Nikons that are much sharper... but then that could just be the glass. As I said, I'll see if that's the case in a day or two as I've purchased a very nice lens that's suppose to be super sharp.

    Now THAT's a good shot. You're not new to photography, methinks
    Welcome to the site, I'm looking forward to seeing more of your pics.

    This 3-wheeled velocipede hand-car was built in 1881. Signalmen, inspectors and maintenance crew still use some form of hand-car on most railroads today.

    If the results don't agree with the theory, believe the results and invent a new theory...
