Shinkansen in Flight

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 24 May 2007 in Transportation and Portfolio.

This is what you can see from the park in the previous two days' shots. This shinkansen (bullet train) is a 'Nozomi Super Express' if I remember rightly, on its way down to Hakata.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Olaide from Fort Collins, United States

I've never been inside one but I will one day. Love you shot.

Mike Cash from Kiryu, Japan

Got to ride the Shinkansen between Takasaki and Nagano over the GW holidays. Must have been the first time in close to twenty years. I had forgotten just how blasted fast they seem from the inside. You did well to get that picture. Do they not have everything blocked off with chain link fence where you are?

3 Jun 2007 8:51am

@Mike Cash: Thanks Mike. Took this through the fence, from the location in the previous 2 days' shots. Had to do a bit of cropping to tidy it up, lens wouldn't quite fit through the links! Are you excited about the new shinkansen about to make its debut...?

Alfredo J. Martiz J. from Tokyo, Japan

Great shot, nicely framed!
