Theme Day - Public Transportation
I just realized yesterday afternoon that I didn't have a photo for theme day. So, on my way to meet a friend for drinks, I saw one of our light rail trains approaching in my rear view mirror. I held my camera out of the driver's side window while I was stopped at a traffic light and I didn't even look to see what I was taking. I just snapped. I was thinking that it was probably a throw-away shot, but once downloaded, I kind of like it. It has that slight "Tenin-style" tilt to it and I love the giant sun reflection on the building behind the train.
Lately our light rail trains have been wrapped up in all kinds of advertising making them moving bill boards. It is something the city really didn't want to do, but with the bad economic times, the extra money helps to support the transit system.
