  1. Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide/high for in-line viewing, and please try to keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc). Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Thursday threads are right here. Remember: only 3 images each week!​
    Happy new year to all photonetters and welcome to the 1st EOS thread of the year. Let's see your new shots for a new year.
  2. Another year done...
  3. Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2014 was good to you and that 2015 will be even better.

    I'm on the road, as always, and was gone for both Christmas and New Year's, just like most holidays for the past 30 years, but at least I got some interesting photos during this last week. This is a Shinkansen bullet train stopped at Hakata Station in Fukuoka, Japan. We had a day off so we hopped on the bullet train to Hiroshima to see the museum and the Peace Park. The train will do 200 mph, but I'm guessing we only got up to about 130 mph or so on our short 80-mile trip. The ride was amazingly smooth and quiet, and, being Japan, the train was immaculate. No litter or graffiti anywhere in sight on the train or in any of the stations.
  4. This is the Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima. It was the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall in 1945 and the Bomb detonated 2,000 feet almost directly overhead. Since the blast was coming down from above, it didn't knock the building over. Every three years the City of Hiroshima does a soundness survey on the building, which is why it's surrounded by scaffolding right now. The Peace Park and museum are nearby with memorials, exhibits and calls for world peace and the abolishment of nuclear weapons. You can even ring the Peace Bell, which we did. (Fun Fact: South Africa is the only country to voluntarily give up nuclear weapons.)
  5. Here are some lighted trees and an illuminated gazebo at the entrance to the Hakata train station. There were actually some Christmas decorations nearby that I refused to photograph. You see Christmas decorations all over Japan these days and it just seems wrong, just like all the Starbucks, McDonalds and KFC stores seem wrong in this beautiful country too.

  21. Happy new year to all here on
    My contribution is from yesterday, so the last photo of the year;
  22. Happy new year to all! I shot this morning at the end of the winter storm that passed last night through California and the Southwest. I shot this from Cottonwood, AZ, looking north toward Flagstaff (which, of course, you can't see.)
    Looking at some of the beautiful shots here, it occurred to me that, maybe, in a world going mad, we have an opportunity to use our art to help stem the tide during the new year. As Enya sings, "May It Be"...
