Default Your Best Train-less/Rail-less Shots

Obviously you all take photography pretty seriously, which would make me guess that you've got shots that don't involve trains. Share a few!


Honorary Catcher, Arlington, TX


Girl + Guitar, Boston, MA


Emily's Ink, Hawi, HI


Lightning, Norman, OK

The lightning shot was probably the most fun to take... if you've never stood atop a 16 story building during a thunderstorm, I highly recommend that you try it sometime.

Also, I need to get some more people in my train shots... they're interesting to look at.

It's hard to choose, but people always go crazy over this pair of sunset shots...

Thumbs up

I really like this thread, it gets us railfans a chance to show our other interests. I am a dog lover so I take a lot of pictures of our farm dogs and our house dog. I am also a Mustang lover and take what my freinds say is ''to many'' pictures of .


The first is of my Pomeranian named him Killer, The other 2 dogs are farm dogs named Rebel and Watcher. The car is my 06' Mustang GT another interest of mine besides Railfanning. I know my layout is Rail related but it's still cool. I am looking forward to what other people have.

People always really like either the first or the second, but never both equally.
Ah, taste.

I like to shoot some Nature and maybe special events that go on around the area. I dont have nothing fantastic but just stuff I like to shoot!





And sometimes I try to be creative.

I don't have much accessible online; here are two. One is an airport - is that insufficiently off-topic?

City Hall, Seoul (I have three Korea train pix on RP)


Frankfurt, Germany (needs leveling)

I shoot just about anything, but my favorite subjects are landscapes and architecture. Here's a few examples:

Only minutes before sunset and no train in sight !
All what remained: a beautiful piece of nature
... only a ship showed up to break the mirror image of it into something strange ... !

Here's a grab shot of a sunset cloudscape I took some time ago -
unfortunately, I accidently lost the original but I hope this gives a flavour:



Hopefully you can make out the 'swan'...

I like this, mainly because of the color.

It really sucks when you lose an original copy.
