  •   1000littlewords @sgeunlimited I wish I still had this job, I worked in a major hotel as a Bartender in Las Vegas, Nevada. The job was so flexible that we could ask for almost any days off and they would grant it to us, during this time, I was able to travel quite a bit.. It was also a busy time in the city. 2w
  •   1000littlewords @sgeunlimited What do you do in Egypt? Are you a student? There for work? 2w
  •   sgeunlimited Tagines are one of the preferred things to me and you can eat the most delicious oriental desserts in Egypt. I like living in a place that has a mix from different cultures, it creates a more good environment and social than being in one culture... This will be my first year in Egypt as i came to study for uni still in the beginning of the road but, am interested in photography and looking for it... I'd like to travel but the chance didn't come yet.... BTW i always hear about Las Vegas and how great is it and Nevada. 2w

  •   1000littlewords @sgeunlimited I agree with you about Tangine, there are many ways to make it and craft it to your taste, much like a curry. I am really curious about the Asian Desserts in Egypt now, I will have to do some research on this. Thank you for telling me about it....In regards to Cosmopolitan Cities, I can agree with you about that, although perhaps my experiences are a bit biased cause I've lived in places that are only mixed cultures. The majority of the world will be like this soon, it already is heading that way. Which I think is going to be a good thing. You sound like you are on a very interesting journey studying abroad in Egypt, I'm sure you will have at the very least a interesting experience to tell when it is all over.....hopefully you will pursue something you are passionate about, photography is a beautiful art form, I myself am happy to have found a love for it, right now is a great time to get into photography because so many people are doing it and it is an easy hobby to learn and practice daily:) Las Vegas can be exciting at times especially for those just visiting, if you live here it can be a different story, it can be quite boring at times especially if you have no money, it's a hard town to make friends in because of the lifestyle of workers. Many jobs in the city are 24hours and 7 Days a week so it's hard for large groups of people to be social with each other..but other than that, it is quite a cheap place to live and many other great cities are not far from it. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, San Diego are close by...as well as some historic places like the Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park among others. Those places are a photographers dream:) 4d

1000littlewords 10 Interesting Facts About Trains.

1. Although wagons have been used for over two thousand+ years, the first modern trains were developed and used in Great Britain during the early 1800's.

2. The longest continuous train route is the Trans Siberian Express Railway Line extending some 5,700 Miles+ from Moscow to Vladivostok!

3. The fastest train speed currently belongs to the Shanghai Maglev Train which connects Shanghai Airport to Shanghai's Metro Area at a whopping 268mph!

4. Other than walking and riding a bicycle, the train is still one of the most Eco Friendly modes of transport available....Until mass produced electric cars change all that.

5. The largest railway station in the world by number of platforms is New York's Grand Central Station with a gigantic 44platforms spread out over 48 acres.

6. The worlds heaviest train on record was an Australian Freight Train that weighed over 86 Million KG!

7. 70% of all train journeys in England begin and or end in London.

8. The United States once had a massive railroad network which stretches some 250,000miles from coast to coast and many points in between. Today those lines have shrunk down to under 170,000 miles and is mostly used for transporting merchant goods these days.
9. It takes a train about a mile or more in length to come to a complete stop.

10. Almost everything we use on a daily basis was on a train at one point in time.

  •   1000littlewords @kurages_ru @blkmgk2 @marit_hov Thank you for taking the time to read the facts. It gives me great joy to take photos and then learn about the subjects within them afterward. It's a beautiful way to learn. 3w
  •   1000littlewords @marit_hov That's awesome! That's quite a short ride but it must feel really convenient to get to work that way. That is something that most of us who live in the USA know nothing about, unless you live in a large urban center, commute by train is a foreign experience. 3w

1000littlewords Same truck as my last photo on the same day, but using a different camera. First one was shot with an IPhone5s, this one was shot with the Sony a6000 with a 50mm Prime Lens at F22 and 1/8sec. This shot reminds me of something from Transformers, perhaps Optimus Prime comes to mind, although he is missing the trailer. I got excited upon seeing this sunset cause we rarely get thick cloud coverage during the intense summer in Nevada. But when we do, the results are spectacular for shooting sunsets and sunrises. Since taking up photography two years ago, I have a deeper appreciation for observation in general but even more so for the things I would have otherwise not given a second thought to, such as this truck parked in a seemingly barren and ugly desert lot. Photography has changed the way I look at the world for the better I think and in the process it offers an inexpensive hobby that you can involve yourself in anytime and anyplace. For traveling, it's become an indispensable activity, for life, it's become a silent, colorful and powerful teacher.

1000littlewords A solitary Semi Truck sits in the desert lot near the Centennial Hills area of North Las Vegas. The sun blazing amidst thick cloud coverage heightens the mood of the shot. One of the most beautiful sunsets witnessed in the Las Vegas Valley in recent years. Tonight could be another repeat performance.

1000littlewords What would the World
Would Be Like If
Bali Didn't Exist?

It would probably be a shade less colorful. 🔆
Surfing would be a tad bit boring. Tropical Drinks would be ordered less and less in non tropical environments. Hippies would have one less place to hang in South East Asia. Indonesia would not get mistaken for being the country next to Bali!
