Reflections on light rail

The light-rail station closest to campus is closed for a while — big news for the brave few who don’t drive to school. After I got the photo assignment for this story, I promptly forgot all about it, and ended up having to shoot it in a big hurry. I really wanted to get a more direct illustration, like a frustrated person standing at the closed station while the train whizzes by. Unfortunately, the platform is all fenced off, and the trains go about as fast as a grandmother parking a Cadillac, so that would be a tough shot to get.

Anyway, it’s not my best work, but I was out of ideas.

VTA light rail

Betsy Canfield, a San Jose State University sophomore majoring in human resources, waits to board the VTA light rail at the Santa Clara station Wednesday. The Paseo de San Antonio station closer to campus, which Canfield normally uses, is closed for renovation.
