Photographer's Note

This is a picture of one of the original bullet trains (or Shinkansen in Japanese). Talking to one of the drivers, he mentioned that these will go out of production in October of this year.
I remember going on one of these things for the first time in 1984 and the feeling of speed and exhilaration have always stayed with me.
Otsukaresama (great job) bullet train! We'll miss you!

PS: put a bit of noise, converted to B&W
