Exclamation Street Running

I wonder if you would get arrested for trespassing here? Yeah, it's kinda close.

Incredible. They have that routine down perfectly. I wonder how many times a day they have to fold up like that.

I don't mean to burst your bubble or anything, but I posted that same video about 2 months ago.

That's OK, I see that it got the same lackluster and indifferent response then, too.

The foreign stuff just doesn't impress people around here.

Yeah, go figure. What we need to do is set up a street market in Lagrange...that'll get people excited.

I'm sure if it was a high-speed train, there would be much more interest.

It's still quite remarkable when you think about it. NO scene like that could ever exist in the U.S.

Probably the angle, and the fact that the thumbnail looks like an arial shot of a wreck or junkyard.

Junk and wrecks get EVERYONE'S attention. <--- (original observation by moi)

So true!

And of course true that the foreign stuff gets less attention in the shots, haven't paid attention to whether that is true in the forums.

I can say I'm biased.. I always click photos from WV, and VA, and not so much anywhere else unless it grabs me..
