Default Ohio railfans, you missed a once in a lifetime opportunity!

You had the opportunity to catch a picture of a LION or TIGER while railfanning!

Dont know how much national Pub this has gotten, but it has been all over the local TV and radio stations up here.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

The only kind of zebra I've shot has mating worms on it's front and rear...

You don't pay attention to national news too much, do you. This was huge Wednesday morning...you're a bit late.

Yeah, we were running stories on it that day, too. In Columbia on local TV. It was kinda a big deal.

It was our local news's breaking story... and we're in California. It's amazing how something in Ohio is more important for them to report on than anything in California. It was an interesting story though.
