CFFC Photo Challenge – Trains and Railroads

CFFC Photo Challenge: Anything to do with trains and railroads

Here is a little collection of pictures I’ve taken from a train- or at a Train Station.

I’ve noticed that on most of these challenges people list what kind of equipment they used, so I guess I should too.

I use my phone and in a few cases my point and click camera impressive right? LOL.

I keep meaning to take photography more seriously, but to be honest I know I don’t have the eye for it and that my composition blows.

But I enjoy the process so much I just keep snapping- or wait, clicking (?) away.

This shirt has been hanging on the fence along the tracks that run by my warehouse since February 2020. I guess it’s here to stay. Also, I think it looks like a ghost.

You know I’ve heard it said that snow makes everthing look pretty.

This picture proves that it does not.

One-liner Wednesday – I Walked On Your Face!

Mars has been flown by, orbited, smacked into, radar examined, and rocketed onto, as well as bounced upon, rolled over, shoveled, drilled into, baked and even blasted.

Still to come: Mars being stepped on.

— Buzz Aldrin

I guess there’s more then one way to say ‘ go team ‘ but Buzz said it best.

I’ve included this clip- it does not mentions Mars, but because it echoes the quote and reminds us who could end up ” stepping on Mars’ face”

I have no clear picture in my mind about who that person is, I just hope they are as cool as Buzz.

From The NASA Website:

Perseverance carries instruments and technology that will pave the way for human missions to the Moon and Mars.    

The Terrain-Relative Navigation system, which autonomously helps the rover avoid hazards during landing, and the Mars Science Laboratory Entry, Descent, and Landing Instrumentation 2 (MEDLI2) sensor suite, which gathers crucial data during the journey through the Martian atmosphere, will help future human missions land more safely and with larger payloads on other worlds.

Perseverance also has features that will help astronauts once they’re on the surface of another world: improved self-driving smarts for more efficient travel and the Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer (MEDA) instrument suite, which will provide key information about weather, climate, and dust. Meanwhile, the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE) technology demonstration aims to produce oxygen from Mars’ carbon dioxide atmosphere, demonstrating a way future explorers might produce oxygen for rocket propellant as well as for breathing.
