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

If you have ever tried to photograph toys especially action figures, it is not as easy as one might think.

Especially in natural light.

Mostly experimenting at the moment with Mr. Stewart.

This shot was actually during a lull in the action due to a stuck switch.

Would you be willing to do a workshop on photographing action figures for us?

The screener's have been accepting "ridiculous stuff" as said by some people. By submitting this, I think you have the idea in your head that the screener's are going to accept it?

Just saying, I may be wrong.
Do you have much room to talk with your two near identical photos in the DB?

Chase please take the Forum Monitor sash off, this is getting old. We have already hashed this out.

I was thinking about posting something saying that Coborn was the police of the police, but then that might make me the police of the police of the police.

You seem to be part of every argument, Max. Instead of bitching about everything you dislike about each individual contributor, perhaps you should consider posting more useful information.

Not sure why you pick at every comment, but that's what I think is really getting old.

Im only picking at all the comments you have been making criticizing people for erroneous reasons.

Well, I knew you were going to say that, and though I do lean that way, I turned in my resignation form to the department two hours ago.

Good man. Does anyone else think that the forum and railpics have really been "off" the last couple of weeks?

I agree Max. It is just like a high-school cafeteria. Plenty of dumb put-downs and comebacks. You guys bicker over every little thing.

Moto-Cross Champion James Stewart Watches a Westbound Stacker - New Years Eve 2010 Series

Moto-Cross Champion James Stewart Watches a Westbound Stacker - New Years Eve 2010 Series

While trapped in a sand berm along side Highway 138 in the Cajon Pass near C.P. Summit for an undetermined period of time ( follow this link ) moto-cross racer James Stewart gained an appreciation for the hobby of ralfaning.

Consequently, he became a hard core railfan once he was rescued and now plans to tour Southern California watching and photographing trains.

Here Mr. Stewart spends a chilly New Years eve watching a Westbound stack train pound through the station at Fullerton California in route to the Port of Los Angeles.

BNSF San Bernardino Subdivision at Mile Post 165 - Fullerton Train Station.

(December 31, 2010)


Other adventures of James Stewart:

Railfaning Cajon http://www.flickr.com/photos/3672212...n/photostream/
Excellent Bokeh on the train. Great isolation of subject.

No but really thats funny.

Not at all. They're back to exactly where they used to be. All is right in the world.

Be careful. I think you can get banned by just mentioning his name these days.

Perhaps when I figure out what it is that I am looking for and what direction I am headed.

I was inspired by some of these photographers and groups on Flickr and then a friend found Mr. Stewart at the turnout at Summit and a project was born.

I suppose it is sort of an extension of the dog photos.
