It's probably been 30+ years since I've actually been asked to have a taste of one. We do eat a lot of interesting food, in general, like chicken feet and beef tongue, but the eggs is just not necessary. If I actually think hard on the things I was served as a child, like real snails, dog, etc., I would think my parents abused me.

When I was in Vietnam, there were street vendors in the local village that cooked and served grilled meat on skewers. It was very flavorful and tender. The only thing was you didn't ask what kind of meat it was...

Was in a bit of a spirited discussion earlier on another group, talking about transportation photos. The general feeling among the members there, is that the only good shot of a car, plane, ship or train is a quartering shot with the vehicle approaching you. According to the "experts" in the group, anything else is just a snapshot. This shot is noisy, and was taken nearly 10 years ago with average equipment...I would love to have the exact same conditions with modern gear, but I think the shot still works. Doesn't anyone else get bored with every shot trying to look exactly the same?

I like the shot.

And if there was ever someone who doesn't abide by the "rules," just look at Jay Beckman's aviation photography.

Thanks for the input. I still think there is more to photography than getting your image posted on what essentially boils down to a stock image site. If every picture has to look the same, what is the point in taking them?

Love the train! I live in a rural town, where the train tracks go right through it all day long. I can hear it from 8 miles away at my house. Makes me happy. I love the country. But the trains are nothing special. We have a gravel pit i the center of town. Weird.

Agree. If I want a postcard shot, I can buy a postcard.

Q: What did Cinderella say when she left the photo store?

A: "Someday my prints will come."
