Come winter

There's nothing between you and the North Pole but three rows of barbed wire.

I know, I know --

and you can see your dog run away for three days.

How flat is it?

It's so flat that on a clear day you can see the back of your own head.

Quarter-Miler

I counted 34 boxcars. Average boxcar length in 1940 was 40 feet. So adding the caboose and locomotive, this train would have been about 1440 feet long. And yet so hard to see unless you zoom in.

Large format heaven!

Kodachrome in 35mm format was awesome enough. I can only imagine shooting it in a large format like 4 x 3 inch.

Wow!

Awesome big country.
