Three photos from a moving train…

Beautiful NY State. It really is. I took these photos last week while on a train from NYC to Buffalo. I love the fall colors before the snow came. The bottom photo I think is particularly interesting in that that camera focused in a the stream and everything else is a sort of blur becauseContinue reading “Three photos from a moving train…”

Ten Photos from a Moving Train, and a few words…

So I took the train home from NYC today. I’ve taken this train numerous times in my life and I still enjoy it. I’ve also posted pictures of this trip on other occasions, but not since last year. I was not going to post any–or even take any photos for that matter–until the train gotContinue reading “Ten Photos from a Moving Train, and a few words…”

Five Photos of the Hudson River (taken from a moving train)

These photos dispel a few things. One is that New York State is entirely occupied by New York City. I know that people don’t actually believe this (well ok, some may), but often when you mention you are from another part of the state (Buffalo, for example) to someone who is not from the northeast,Continue reading “Five Photos of the Hudson River (taken from a moving train)”

I took a 5:45am flight (geeze that is early for someone who is not particularly a morning person) and that’s an image above from the plane window. Awesome isn’t it. The sun coming up overContinue reading “Photos from Moving Windows…”

Just One Reason I prefer the Train over a Plane

There are many reasons I prefer the train over a plane for long distance travel (besides my mild fear of flying), but my favorite reason is simple…the view. These are a few pictures I took through the train window this past weekend; I had dozens of course, but thought I’d only bore you with theseContinue reading “Just One Reason I prefer the Train over a Plane”

The Journey is Sometimes as Important as the Destination (and how to eat on a train)

Because of modern technology I am typedthese words—and subsequently uploaded them to this blog—as Ibarreled down train tracks at 60 mph on my way to NYC. This is one ofmy favorite train trips (from Buffalo to New York). It’s about 500miles and take just about the same time as it would to drive. Infact, itContinue reading “The Journey is Sometimes as Important as the Destination (and how to eat on a train)”
