While waiting for our “L” train in Evanston, Illinois, I grabbed the first photo of a train heading the other way. The second photo I snagged covertly during our train ride. Mass transit is a major part of so many people’s lives, whether it’s how you get to work or just around the city where you live. In Utah, mass transit includes buses and light-rail trains. The trains have been around for just the last 10 years or so, but they are a fun way to get around the city without having to fight traffic or look for a place to park.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF FORMS OF MASS TRANSIT (TRAINS, PLANES, BUT NO AUTOMOBILES).
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

I prefer walking or cycling, but can’t always avoid mass transportation in the city.
Here’s my take https://anglogermantranslations.wordpress.com/2016/04/21/a-photo-a-week-challenge-mass-transit/
Great shots, Nancy. Not sure if I have any photos for this challenge.
You can’t always avoid mass transportation but as a tourist most of the time you can: https://geriatrixfotogallerie.wordpress.com/2016/04/22/tourist-boat/
Hi Ailsa, here is my books-entry:
Sorry: my “Mass Transit entry”. (a little confused, because I go away on holiday tomorrow)
Hope you had a wonderful holiday!
I grew up in NY where mass transit is how everyone gets around and have ended up in Uxbridge where no only do we not have any form of mass transit, we don’t even have a taxi. Not one. Nothin’. So, I’ll just set this one out but enjoy the memories, realizing that despite the inconvenience of not having mass transit, I always hated the subway and buses and I’m really glad I don’t need them anymore!
It was definitely a challenge for me to find a photo for this one. Here it is. https://jennysotherstuff.wordpress.com/2016/04/23/moving-the-masses/
You have some great photos for this week. 😀
Here is my entry.
Greetings! I’m new to this Challenge so I hope one of these is appropriate. Thanks!
