I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.

Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany is home to the world’s largest model railroad landscape. Last year, it added to its already impressive collection of miniatures with the world’s largest miniature airport. This 494-square feet display is based on Hamburg’s Fuhlsbüttel International airport. It took seven years to build and cost an estimated $4.8 million. What’s more impressive than the price tag is the detail that went into this work of art. It includes 40,000 lights, 15,000 figurines, 10,000 trees, 1000 wagons, 500 cars, 300 buildings, 200 switches, 100 signals, 50 trains, and 40 planes. All scaled down to perfection.
