Come on, the deadline's almost a month away anyway

There's a great Transport Museum here in Glasgow, and I have about a million of pictures from there... But none of them are good enough for the contest imo

well if noone wants to start it off, I will do.


1) polar express

this is a train left off the coal mining during the 50ies and 60ies in Ny Aalesund (Kings Bay) / Spitsbergen. People proudly call it the northernmost train of the world, even though its a cultural heritage now and not working anymore.
The pic was taken with my Practica analog SLR as a slide and scanned in.




2) sunset sailor

This was last year at Usedom. A spectacular scenery makes one almost think on an oil painting.
Taken with my Canon Powershot 530, as pic 3 as well.





3) one ticket please

Without comments....

"One after the other"

This was taken here in Dubai, last Friday, at my friends house. It was taken from the roof of his building. Actually I was just testing a particular mode on the camera, but the photo came out pretty cool, I guess...kinda liked it. I used a Canon EOS 50D 28-135mm lens


Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.
