Meet My Famous Dear Husband!

Imagine my delight when I saw N-Scale Magazine sitting in a magazine rack yesterday at the Strasburg Station train store in Lancaster, PA.

And here's Dave's super-awesome front cover picture, and inside is his feature article! I wish I could share the whole article here with you, but from our vacation we can't do it -- and instead will refer you to your favorite model railroading hobby shop for the latest copy.

The work Dave had put into the photographs for this article was remarkable. I'd estimate over 1000 pictures, and over 20 hours worth of work staging the shots and getting the color composition right. We definitely used our small, but capable Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS to the max! Our friend Maryann @ Fotomom helped Dave with the photography quite a bit and we're very grateful for her expertise and advice.

It also has us considering whether a higher quality camera -- such as a DSLR -- is in order. We discussed it earlier this spring, but it's an investment that will have to wait until after we pay off our summer travel.

As they say in the Navy (because the Air Force doesn't have a cool, historically significant saying like this), BRAVO ZULU Dear Husband!

How cool is that?! I'll be sure to share with my daddy, who is a model train collector (and has a very cool setup, if I do say so myself!).

Rain into Rainbows, sorry your comment didn't get published till just now...I was on vacation for 2 weeks and my internet discipline went down the tubes! Your note got buried in other new e-mails and I forgot to hit the "Publish" button.

Thanks for sharing!
