Paducah, Kentucky. AKA, the middle of nowhere. We're 2 hours southeast of St. Louis, 6 hours south of Chicago, 2 hours northeast of Memphis, three hours northwest of Nashville, 4 hours southwest of Louisville... and it's horrifically boring here.

Sweet, and that loco's even a 4-8-2 Mountain type. We Kiwis invented that. The X class.

I know none of you have a fucking clue what I'm on about here.

Yep. As a rule, if it runs on rails, I care. Hell, I even have a passing interest in wharf cranes that run on rails, like the ones on Wellington's wharves that fascinated me when I was little.

The only problem is that I have great difficulty getting underground photos to work out at all (Melbourne lacks a subway, but has a three-station underground city loop). I guess because my camera's shit unless it's in natural light or something. Or I just use the wrong setting.

*googles Paducah*

Pop. 26,000? Wow. I should stop bitching. We have over 100,000 in the metro area here.

Yeah that would be hard.

In boston we've got a number of places where the subway goes overground so you'd get decent pics.

I think higher ISO settings will help with low light pictures.

We have electricity, but water pressure is mediocre. And the power goes out for no reason sometimes.

Yeah, I rode the Boston subway out to Wellington, just for a laugh.

I love how your tram line (the green line, right?) goes underground too.

Wish I'd taken photos ... I took a camera with me to the US, but I didn't photograph much back then and didn't bring it to Boston as I was travelling very light, so it stayed with most of my stuff in Tennessee.

The 26,000 doesn't cover the rich county bitches. The thing about Paducah is that it's the biggest place for miles and miles around, so we get all the people from the dinky towns in the surrounding counties coming here for everything all the time.

Oh and all the native Paducahans here hate people from southern Illinois (we're right across the river from southern Illinois). It's kind of cute actually. It's like you see an Illinois license plate on the car in front of you, and you go "GO BACK TO ILLINOIS!"

Yeah, I've been reading up on photograph the last couple of days while procrastinating on essays and read that. Shame my cheapo digital camera has just one ISO option: Auto!

Our areas have much in common. Your downtown:



Ours:



Same city planner put them together, it seems. But I must say, our pic is flattering.

Well.. maybe you could get the tram drivers to put some lighting on the outside of the trains.. so you could get a good night picture

Local governments love spending money on nothing!
