Photowalking Trains now up

A new Photowalking with Thomas Hawk is now up. Nice look at the world’s largest train museum in Sacramento. Thomas Hawk has a writeup with links to lots of photos. More than 20 people came along, so you’ll meet some interesting photographers and see some cool equipment.

Hope you enjoy. I could shoot Thomas for hours. We have some great conversations, Part II will be up later today. Here you’ll get a good look at American train history. By the way, if you want a higher resolution look at this video (there’s a lot to see) you should download the MP4 version to your hard drive, then play from there. At the end you’ll meet Phil Glatz, who has a cool 3D camera you can build yourself for very little money. I have an earlier writeup about the event here.

Thomas Hawk wrote me and said this was his favorite photowalking so far. Mine too!

  1. Interesting shots up on Thomas’s site. That Canon lens he’s using is phenominal.

    When’s the next one? I’m coming out to SF from NYC from Feb 28th through the weekend so I would have a shot at the furtherst travelled award …

  3. Anyone think there is a market for a steam train for
    entertainment/nostalgia in the Washington DC area.
    I have 1500′ on a little used track and think the owners of the track would help out with such a project.
    I would look for knowledgeable persons as potential
    operators, although sophisticated investors might be
    of help. “Stars and Stripes” Ricardo email

  5. My brother is a HUGE garden railroad enthusiast. Go to blip.tv and search “garden railroad” and you can take a ride on his little train.

    Do you think there will be a big niche for garden railroad vlogs? I just got my 6-year-old son his first N-scale set and I have a feeling it will become a big part of our lives for the next 10 years. (God, I hope he doesn’t end up being one of those people who does it his whole life.) ;)

    I wonder if I can mount my video camera to his train… Hmmm…
