Photo of the Moment


The moment is late morning. The streetcar is DC Transit painted 1076, and the photo is as study of light and texture. What comes to mind when I look at this photo is the feeling of “homeyness” that can be experienced while on board a PCC. The comfort of a padded seat. The feeling of openness as the light shines through the standee windows. The soft light provided by the  incandescent lights overhead. The feeling of smooth Stainless Steel in one’s hand as they reach for the stanchion. The thought that follows is the difference between a PCC’s interior and the almost “sterile” environment inside one of Muni Metro’s Breda LRVs. Two different eras of transit vehicles that share space in the same city…So very close, yet so very different.
