    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Are trains your speciality then, Mo?
    Do you maybe collect photos of trains from all over the world?

    Well, usually. I also take other pictures, but I like trains.
    One of my hobbies is model train collecting, and I have some pictures at: www.themotec.com/Ole/WEB_Gallery7

    Here is a picture in whcih I attempted to make the background white(Not edited).
    Most of the other ones in the gallery above are with landscape, though.

    My God you remeind me of my past uncle. He came from my mothers side of the family. The english side (that's why I know so much english). He was by far my favorit uncle. He had a huge model railway in his shed in England. I rember running out into the garden so I could watch him and my brother drive them. I never much wanted to drive them myself but I loved to watch them do it. He also loved train spotting. He would spend hours on end on the platform jotting down numbers and taking pictures of trains that went by to fast to note the number. Some nights he would sett up a slide show for us (he always used slide film). When he died my mother went a lot to England clearing out the house (my grandmother had moved to a home at this point, but untill then they had lived in the same house together). His slide collection was huge. More then anyone was willing to count. It was all donated to some railway club. I wish I'd kept his equipment now that I do photography.

    But back to the point. Your photos really bring back memories.

    Thanks!

    I tie in train spotting with the rest of my vacation, so its balanced out. I do both sightseeing and train spotting at the same time.

    If you want to see some of my other photos, or maybe more trains, go to
