Default Balboa Park

Been quiet around here recently. So here are a few pictures I took in mid-November. I think they were all taken with the 01 lens.













This is a must-see for model train buffs that visit San Diego. It's one of the museums in Balboa Park. Here's a sign with some of the vital information about it (the picture above the train operator working on his track is from the Tehachapi Loop exhibit). When I was growing up my parents bought me dolls to play with when what I really wanted was either a train set or a pony...

Very nice series, I like the first shot best that 01 and the train set makes it look line a tilt-shift lens, great detail both the set and the lens

Awesome train set-up!

Amazing, beautiful captures!

1st one I had to do a double take to figure out it was a model! <grin>

Thank you all! The first one was by far my favorite picture from the museum. It shows just how lovingly and beautifully detailed the set-ups are. I think most people would think of the museum for kids more than adults, but it sure brought out the kid in me. I loved it.

Pretty cool! Lots of work involved in that... both in the building and maintenance.
