Venus is about to go in crescent phase.

In late Sept and early Oct Venus will be in crescent phase and still be high enough above the horizon after sunset. I'll probably shoot it with the Tamron 150-600. Here's a link to info.


Shop trucks in the shop

At Walmart I saw the Hot Wheels "Shop Trucks" series, so I got the '60s Ford Econoline and '83 Silverado.

Live railcams on Youtube

A few days ago l discovered these cams trackside. You can go up to 4 hours back from live. Which means you can scroll though thumbnails rapidly and find them, and see all the trains in the last 4 hours in a few minutes. And there's live chat. The Virtual Railfan channel has about 10 cameras up. Seems like the Norwalk, CT location is the busiest because it has commuter trains as well as freight.


Houston and Oklahoma City.

I got one of the Hot Wheels Team Transport series. The car is a '70s Nissan Laurel, a Japanese Domestic Market car. The first image has downtown Houston, and the second is Bricktown in Oklahoma City.
