Re: Aerials

Oh sure, no problem at all! Thanks for asking, and for the link.
That shot was simply from a window seat on the way into Logan. I was intending to get some skyline photos on this approach, but I'd...

Re: Biking in Boston

Sorry for the crappy nighttime photo, but there's a new traffic light for bikes at Western and Putnam in Cambridge. I can't recall having seen one of these in the Boston area before; do they exist...

Re: MBTA Map Contest Finalists

About the B/C/D convergence, it's nice to show but I agree with Shepard above that few people are actually helped by seeing it. A much more useful proximity to show would be Green and Orange:...

Re: Biking in Boston

Re: Biking in Boston

Yeah, this. Cambridge/Somerville could use another 20 stations... or Brookline, Allston, etc.

I had this idea that stations in those supposedly "served" areas are too often full or empty because...

Re: Boston from Above

Loving all these unique views!

Not exactly high above anything, but here are a few from a Comm Ave rooftop. The smoke is because it was the 4th of July.

Re: Urban Mass Transit Systems Of North America

It's going to be good to see that Cincy streetcar, after it's been in danger of being killed so many times in recent years. Cincinnati was always my favorite in Ohio; it has tons of potential in its...

Nice sunset yesterday; tried an HDR thing on it. (i.e., lots of Photoshop involved)
