Heather!!! <3

she's now a local model that i've worked with a couple of times.

Glad to hear she got signed with an agency. I lost touch with her but we had a good session.

Seriously, Prius's are like the Cheetahs of cars.

OT - Don't even start me on Prius drivers, much worse then even BMW drivers.

I hope this one gets thrown out. They're trying to blame the railroad for their stupidity. And the signs are there. The BNSF tracks around here are just littered with them.

I think this senior railroad track issue has merit on both sides of the lines.
Some think it is extremely dangerous
Some think it is ok to do
But the bottom line is safety. You don’t want to put your client at risk, it is up to you and your client.
It is no different than walking on or by the street and getting hit by a car and I think CARS can sneak up on you more than trains can.. anyways just be aware of your surrounds and talk to your client about safety and level of risk is all I am saying..

Trains magazine put it very succinctly: People who would never try to walk on an airport runway or an interstate highway somehow think they can walk on a railroad..."

I am an engineer on a class one railroad. I can assure you that if your on a track that is in use, you are in danger of both death and being fined/arrested. We are required to report anyone on the tracks and there are video cameras on most locomotives that film you as we approach. So we have to report or we will go down with you. As an engineer that has ran over someone (two pedestrians, 3 vehicles and one 18 wheeler), I ask you to take it seriously. None of the aforementioned people expected to get hit by the train.

With that said, find some abandoned tracks and shoot away.

What about shooting near the tracks, doing waiste up and have the tracks in the background? give the illusion of being on the tracks but not quite. *or is it quiet? hmm*

I have never turned in anyone that wasn't ON the tracks. I can always say I didn't see them if questioned. Our homeland security rules say that we are supposed to be "vigilant" and turn in anything/anyone suspicious. Kids throwing rocks at us on the side of the tracks are just kids being kids. But the trespassing comes in if you are anywhere on the right-of-way which is pretty much anywhere the rocks are and out into the treeline. If your close enough to make it look like they appear to be on the tracks, then your probably trespassing. In danger of harm no, fine yes.

Or a rail museum like I suggested above...

As long as you're off the right-of-way and off railroad property you should be fine. There's an area here in San Diego where the tracks run through an open space park. Amtrak runs ten trains or more a day on the line and there's a commuter railroad that runs almost hourly as well. The park is used by hikers, bicyclists and dog walkers, but they manage to coexist with the railroad because they stay off railroad property.

Mike,
this software is heavy with lots of options..
I am learning all it can do, there is a dedicated forum as well J
What I think is going to help me is the a la cart pricing, cropping, and package pricing system. I also like it that it has an early bird special, to force the client to order earlier than later. And it give the admin. Info on what galleries are being viewed and the count of views..
Adding photo products for sale has always been my weakness and now once I set it up and show a picture of the product , Clients have a much better understanding of what is offered and prices and i don't have to tell them, though I have the display on my product table as they walk in. I need to work on my sales methodology !

I think this senior railroad track issue has merit on both sides of the lines.

But the bottom line is safety. You don’t want to put your client at risk, it is up to you and your client.

Pham im seeing this as well. I looked on their site about hosting galleries. Looks like many are going to use smug. where are you going to host your files. Fell free to drop me a pm. Very interested in this. Looks great:cool:

I think Im going to stop offering track pictures unless I can find some that are not used for sure. How do you find out other than camping out for a week to see if a train goes by. :D

I discovered a great spot last week, I think the trains have to go very slow *walking speed* to go over the bridge that does pretty good turn. I was killing time last week after I discovered the place and was scouting locations and the train went by, going very very slowly. The bad part was I was on the other side of the tracks and that was the only way to get back to the car, there was a river on the other side with cool scenery. Of course it was getting cold and I wasnt wearing a jacket. It took 15 min for them to pass I think. :)

Since the track curves so much I could do a head and shoulders shot and have the tracks in the back no problem, and be 10 yards from the actual tracks.

What are the actual fines? So I can tell the clients so they will decide its not worth it. :D

Most hybrids & electric vehicles are that way. Actually NHTSA has asked these vehicles to emit some audible noise to alert pedestrians.

Fines are going to vary. Each court sets their own fine structure but I can tell you they will be high.
