Trying something new and will use this to alert you to new videos on my youtube! So here's the first update, 
Hello everyone,
I wanted to address something that happened with my last video on youtube and explain a few things that not only relate to my youtube channels but my photos as well. So, a few weeks ago on one of my videos someone pointed out that the video was basically too much Amtrak while another user mistaken my shots for Security Camera footage. These really bothered me and lead to me being completely unmotivated to railfan for about two weeks, as mentioned on our facebook and discord, (links below), Aside from a couple special trains. So I would like to address both of these right now.

First and foremost is, I live on a very quiet line in the California Bay Area. We do not get a large variety of trains. In fact, minus the occasional Autorack train we only have four different trains that travel through the line daily on a schedule. Amtrak, Caltrain, the Salinas Local and the Watsonville Rock. And often I cannot be bothered to wait until 10pm to catch the freight trains especially when it will be too dark for any decent shots as these trains run at night when the passenger trains are not busy. So more often than not Amtrak is the only train I actually manage to catch due to its late morning time slot going south.

As for my camera shots. These are not Security camera stills, I take them myself with my HD camera. I don't get to travel a lot to go train spotting in different locations. I'm train spotting from my backyard as a hobby and do not have the luxury to try different locations or angles. A lot of the trees and road traffic get in the way of the shot since this is a busy road. I use to get much wider shots but often semi trucks would block half my view.

This is a hobby I do in my spare time. I do not make money off it, my videos are not monetized, and I've been lucky to have caught what I have on our quiet line seeing as I've never left the property. So if you are looking for more variety of trains then sadly, you won't find them here. I film what I can, when I can. But if you would like to see more variety I can recommend some great channels to subscribe too. (Links Below)

I also want to mention that I don't post a lot of photos to deviant for several reasons, one of the big ones is I take a lot of photos and Deviantart does not offer a way to upload multiple items at once without paying for a core subscription, which is not something I feel is worth the money due to my small following here. Another reason I don't upload all my photos here is due to how easily items are stolen off Deviantart. I've posted journals in the past warning users of various sites that rip items right off Deviantart and make phone cases with them. This is why my photos are heavily watermarked and I only post a couple, where as on Flickr I can easily post everything. I know Flickr is not completely theft proof but its a lot hard for bots to rip images and make cases of them.

Thank you to all those who have stuck around and enjoy my videos, even if they're pretty mundane compared to most channels.
