    Any Input On Reducing Lens Flare

    These 2 are of downtown Frankfurt. I'm heading to Chile next week and I know its a bit late but trying to eliminate as much as possible.

    Any Input On Reducing Lens Flare

    Yeah, I learned about the LED's the hard way when trying to take pictures of Christmas markets and decorations last year in Germany.

    Why trains instead of planes for long distance?

    Sounds like flying on Alaska.(Unless I missed a post or 2). Sometimes smaller airlines don't exactly have the most efficient routing like the big 3 with their multiple hubs.

    Why trains instead of planes for long distance?

    I'm not sure if those Non Amtrak commuter / corridor services help Amtrak's LD trains or not since you can't buy tickets for both trains as one can for Amtrak run LD and corridors. Only Amtrak / Commuter that are complimentary that I know of is Metrolink, Coaster and the Surfliner which does...

    Why trains instead of planes for long distance?

    Well I think it works better for all LD trains if there were more reliable real corridor frequency to overlap the the LD train. For example, the the Coast Starlight overlaps with 3 separate high frequency corridor service along its route and the CS gets sold as one of the frequency when inside 3...

    If a Big If Oscar Munoz Ran Amtrak - Hypothetical

    Whats your opinion on Kirby? Its funny how the same people who whined that Oscar must go after the Dao incident are now all upset Oscar is going and Kirby is taking over.

    My reusable coffee mug on the Northeast Regionals

    Worked summer job at McDonalds in High School. From my experience, no amount of signage would have helped. The number of trays that were fished out of trashcans whenever the trash cans were emptied out was staggering. And those were only the visible ones since no one was expected to dig down and...

    Any Input On Reducing Lens Flare

    So I've been noticing a lot of lens flare on pictures I've been taking. Especially there is a light source that is LED. Seems to happen on both my phone and Sony. Anyone else have this issue or know of how to reduce or eliminate it?

    Did you leave it on the table or did you throw it in the trash? Thank you for being honest!:D

    My reusable coffee mug on the Northeast Regionals

    The ones that Amtrak was giving out look like the sturdy kind with the handle straps stitched all the way down the side of the bag. I keep couple like these in my car just in case of random stops at the store. I hate the ones which the handles only stitched to the top edge, which seem to break...

    My reusable coffee mug on the Northeast Regionals

    After watching a sick kid sneeze on the salad bar at Whole Foods, I've stopped grabbing food from the make your own salad bars. It might have been a good thing since the cost per pound is a bit high. He was just the right age/height where he had direct unobstructed aim at the items.

    Why buy the whole thing when getting rid of ONE with a "revisionist history" cliche problem would remove the din from ones "echo chamber"?

    My reusable coffee mug on the Northeast Regionals

    So let's ask this question and see how many truthful answers we get. When the CL and LSL changed to enhanced dining, they supplied the meals in reusable shopping bags. How many of you used that bag for your garbage and threw it out or how many of you actually followed threw and dumped the...

    Why is the Cascades Service so Chopped Up?

    Didn't Canada agree to eat the custom clearance cost as well?

    My reusable coffee mug on the Northeast Regionals

    Not at this lounge but at other locations like hotels with flavored water dispensers around, I've seen plenty of people shove their bottles right up on the spigot to refill the bottles. Even with a sign right next to the dispenser saying to not refill their bottles.

    My reusable coffee mug on the Northeast Regionals

    There's already rumblings about how the reusable bags(What a surprise) are actually causing more issues than the plastic bags they were supposed to replace. Yeah all we need is reusable NON degradable cups ending up in the dumpsters and landfill.

    My reusable coffee mug on the Northeast Regionals

    Let's not forget Chipotle had to deal with Norovirus from sick employees. Now just imagine all those dirty personal cups from random people walking into the restaurant. Before some of you point out how clean your cups are, no everyone's are and there's really no easy way other than to ban...

    My reusable coffee mug on the Northeast Regionals

    As someone who used to work at Starbucks back in college, some customers were total pigs and brought in some foul unwashed cups with rancid coffee with milk thats probably baked for couple of days in the car. The smell was enough to trigger my gag reflexes. Not sure what was worse, the ones who...
