Catch up post! In fall, I started a theme on forgotten and closed T entrances. The first one, at Mass Ave, caught my eye one day on my way home from work as actually kind of pretty. I realized I'd never used it, or really seen many people go through it either. I took the picture and thought of a few other entrances that have suffered the same, forgotten fate. Some are closed due to construction, some have been closed as long as I can remember, some are just around the corner and not very popular. But in a city saturated with subway stations and bus shelters, I found it surprising that there would be extras out there that aren't really used or even noticed. Maybe when the T has money again, these entrances will get some attention. Recognize them?
After having a hard time coming up with my next theme, I thought of one while sitting in traffic on the bus on the way home from work. Maybe there was a way to make the commute more interesting? I called the theme transportation, but the photos are all pretty specific to my own route. At first, I felt like I wasn't representing all the various transportation options and subjects, especially since I see so many great photos on my favorite urban Instagram feeds. But then I realized these were an accurate capsule of my day. Except for the two from my trip to Chicago, all of these were taken on my way to and from work or on my lunch break. Shooting and editing along the way made those trips in traffic go a little faster.
