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 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!

1000littlewords This shot was taken on a 12 hour Train Ride from Jakarta to Yogjakarta, Indonesia. Myself and @cincinaroma saw a variety of different environments along the way, beautifully green and lush rice fields, wide open flat, arid farm lands, mountainous and seemingly endless rainy terrain, along with an endless array of characters hoping on and off along the way. Everyone should ride a long distance train trip at least once in their lives, if anything it's a good test to see how well you can entertain yourself or others in a cramped metal tube going at break neck speed. And if you have company, it's definitely a good test to see how well you actually can get along with each other:) Java, Indonesia 2014. 1mon

1000littlewords Osaka Castle looking ominous with a darkening sky and gigantic crow flying next to it. A must visit spot for anyone visiting Central Japan. A place with a huge historical significance in regards to the unification of a once divided nation. Many battles were fought over around and for this little magical piece of land, the progression of Japan as it is today would probably not have been possible without the events that occurred here. Sure it's a beautifully piece of architecture in a very strategic area of Japan... But it's hard to grasp how important the area is until you head to the top of the castle and gaze down on the panoramic view of Osaka itself. Stunning.

1000littlewords Pan Fried Flat Bread Chorizo and Egg Pizza, with Stewed Grapes, Balsamic Vinegar, Cherry Brie and Roquefort Blue Cheese.
Damn tasty and super easy to make.

1. In a saucepan on low heat, combine 1/4 cup of Chorizo, 1/3cup of Red Grapes and 1tsp of Balsamic Vinegar till grapes soften.

2. Prepare Flat Bread or Wheat Flour Tortilla in a Pan on low heat, add three eggs on top of the tortilla and coat the tortilla with the egg white, try to keep the egg yolks centered as much as possible.

3. Sprinkle Chorizo/Grape mixture on top of the Tortilla and add Softned Brie, Crumbled Blue or Gorgonzola to taste. I say about 1/4 cup total is good.

4. Cover Pizza with a lid on low heat. and let sit until the egg yolks start to firm or develop a film. And that's it!

Let me know what you guys think.

1000littlewords This is a photo of @cincinaroma looking out from the rocky shore side of Potipot Island in the Philippines.
The epitome of a deserted island escape, Potipot Island has it all. White Fine Sand, Clear Blue Water, Vibrant Marine Life, Lonely Drift Wood, Rocky Tide Pools and not a single Hotel.
Close to what at one time was the most militarized sea port in all of South East Asia in Subic Bay, Potipot is a short five minute speed boat ride away from the murky black sands of the surrounding Zambales Province Coastline.

If you are planning on visiting Potipot Island, here are some useful tips on how to get there and where to stay
