"fast"~ PhotoHunt


The first photo was taken in the summer of 2003 on a train while hanging my head out the window in a tunnel traveling from Wengen to Lauterbrunnen (Switzerland).

The next photo was taken this past summer on a train traveling from Arezzo to Florence (Italy). I am sure this photo could represent many countryside views of Italy. My intent was to take a photo of the beautiful countryside, but this was what I ended up with. If you look carefully, you can see me in the corner of the window.

And here is another shot on the same train from Arezzo to Florence with the seats of the train included in the shot. The train I took was a nice new regional train, much more comfortable than the older regional trains.

Nice take on the theme! Have a great weekend


Cool shots. The first photo really shows (whizzing by) fast.

Mine is up too... Like you, I am on winter break so I am indulging in napping after school, and going online whenever... Like now, such an ungodly hour... :)

It is very interesting shot of the fast running train...Happy hunting.

these are indeed a fast shot....great shots for the theme today

Great shots for the theme. Happy weekend.


oooh -- well done. I almost got a sense of vertigo looking at the first 2 pics.

Awesome take on the theme. Great shots!

girasoli-I like your take on the theme. Cool shots.
I hope you enjoy your weeks off, and have a great holiday season.

I think these are great photos for the theme. They show the speed perfectly especially the first one. It gives me a little bit of vertigo seeing the side of the tunnel and motion. Have a great weekend.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all of your kind comments about my photos this week. I thought the first one was so blurry and the other two were pretty boring, but I guess they do fit the theme well.

Great FAST shots! Merry Christmas!

Good take on the theme. I'm not sure that I've ever been on a train in Italy that was moving that fast, they always seem to be on strike.

I've got a few of those photos taken from the train too - I always wonder afterwards 'what the heck was I looking at?'! LOL

Have a great weekend!

Hi Girasoli, very cool photos and great take on this week's theme. I also like taking photos while traveling on the trains. Videos are fun too.

How great to have two weeks off. I think I'm going to try and make some cookies today too. Enjoy your winter break! Wishing you and your family a wonderful holidays and a happy and safe New Year!

Love those photos. And yay for vacation! Two more days and I'm off for the rest of the year.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday! And a very happy new year!


Love these photos!

Have a restful break!


Very cool -- I actually like that blurry effect, it gives the sense of motion.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season, Girasoli!


Love those train photos! Have a restful vacation and a great holiday!
