Two Dinosaurs - 3D images from a brief trip to
I must apologize for the condition of this next image. Can you
imagine taking a trip and leaving your camera at home? What with airport
security like it is, I decided since this was just a trip to Dallas, Texas,
there probably wouldn't be anything to take a picture of anyway. So,
when, quite by accident I ended up at the Age of Steam museum standing head
to head with a Union Pacific "Big Boy" I had to swallow my pride and borrow
my wife's "point and shoot". What I wouldn't have given for my 24mm
in the tight confines of the museum yard and the challenging cab lighting.
Big Boy is impressive even in static display in a crowded yard. What
it must have been like to stand by the tracks as this giant hurtled past
at 80 mph, burning 20,000 lbs of coal per hour! You could almost hear
the whistle blow...
Inside the cab
I just can't apologize enough for the unfortunate quality of this image...
Another very strange Texas attraction is the fossil dinosaur tracks along
the Paluxy River in Glen Rose. Again, the borrowed camera but with
more favorable lighting conditions...
