Gee...one post? Come on guys...there's hundreds of regular photographers on this site that are neglecting the "post your mug" thread. Even forum members post their pics. Don't be bashful, people. It's all about unity heh. Ok, e'nuff said.

Dude, shawn... that's actually a pretty sweet picture man. I mean hey, you could use a little meat on those shoulders to make you look like a real man but the creativity of the shot nearly makes up for it!!

lol chris, I was thinking the same thing!! In fact the reason I look so scrawny in that pic is I was holding an external flash way down near my bum and I fired it during the exposure to get this - completely a self-pic

I must admit, I am also a railfan, and many people who are train nuts are VERY weird people. VERY socially awkward and borderline "window-licker".
But many of you seem almost normal, and some of you look like you actually get laid (I dont eitehr though, so dont worry lol)
I am jsut a lot mroe comfortable now seeing that you folks that psoted your pics arent as weird as railfans, which I was a little worried about.Like, M737Mc looks like any one of my friends. Come to NYC man...beer on me. You'd like the NYC ladies.

So, BigPhil, its not just in the UK where railfans are weird. I used to go on rail tours along all nooks and crannies of the UK freight network. Then I realised one day that the train I was on was actually a mass escape from the local lunatic asylum. I prematurely ejected (spellcheck!) and came back into this hobby which was my first love anyway.
And do you have any bus enthusiasts out there. They're something else again...
Fortunately, I've never been caught on camera on a train

One by one folks. Let's all get in a single file line and ask Big Phil questions like that. lol (just goofin)
Ray, since we have the biggest bus operation in the world here (I think so at least), we most certainly have bus fans too. To be honest, they are even MORE weird than the train fanatics. I said that the railfans were borderline windowlickers.........but the bus folk ARE windowlickers. Freaked me out man. You couldn't pay me to go to a BusFest convention.
Shawn, the NYC Ladies would LOVE to hang out with the Sherminator. hee hee.
Craig, I was in my basement there. Good call. Although I am 6'2".
The rock is not Ayers Rock. That'd be pretty cool though. It's jsut a rock near my home, about two blocks away, on the shore of College Point that overloooks LGA from across Flushing Bay.
If it wasn't for that rock, I wouldn't have started watching planes again. I would go there to meditate and read or write, and then I started looking up at all the planes that were departing and approaching.
