Well Robert Scoble and I (along with Kristopher and my entire family) had a great time with about 20 other people earlier today out at the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento shooting the latest episode of Photowalking for Scoble Show. Robert's been a huge fan of the Railroad Musuem and for good resaon. It is simply a breathtaking place to look at trains. Robert's got a nice recap of our day out here. Shel Israel also has a nice write up here.

The event went off pretty much without a hitch. The PR woman wouldn't let Scoble use his tripod in the event (a few photographers snuck them in and used them anyways), but other than that the place seemed very open for photography.

The trains at the museum were just monsters. I've been around trains before but for some reason these trains just seemed larger than life. I kind of went crazy with the abstract aspects of the train on our shoot and I'll definitely be back to spend more time at the musuem and would recommend it for anyone who likes to shoot trains.

My favorite section was the model train area upstairs. This was the area that we shot last and it was getting late in the day but I could have spent 5 hours in that one area alone.

Scoble got some great video footage talking to some of the photographers who came out for our shoot as well as some of the old timers that were working at the museum. The museum staff were pretty good sports to put up with us. I think they are mostly volunteers and some of them were over 80 years old. They told us that it used to cost about $15 to travel across the country in relative style in one of their sleeper cars.

 Kyoto  花嫁さん:京都

A Japanese bride wearing the traditional white japanese wedding kimono, called shiro-maku.
(Shiro meaning white and maku meaning pure). The wedding kimono actually consists of two different kimono. The white wedding kimono is worn for the wedding ceremony and an elaborate rich patterned silk brocade kimono called uchikake is worn over the white kimono at the wedding reception.

In a traditional Japanese wedding, the brides hair is also styled in the traditional hair style called bunkin-takashimada and adorned with beautiful gold combs and accessories called kanzashi. She also wears a special headdress called tsuno kakushi.The purpose of wearing this headdress was to veil her horns of jealousy, ego and selfishness - attributes that should not be displayed at a wedding in front of the groom and his family. It symbolized her resolve to become a gentle, obedient wife. In the past, hair was thought to be unclean, and people wore a headdress to hide it.

The Wataboshi hood was also supposed to conceal the brides face from everyone excpet the groom.
