Bridge to the Island

Slogging through a thick week of photos, from assignments to the daily snaps. Turning up interesting images (like shown above), and satisfactorily wielding my paws to massive deletion of the visual residue that doesn’t make the cut. Rivers of gigabytes flow into the machine, and most of it drains into the infinite hole that is the trash can.

So the front seats on the Chinatown bus ($15 Boston to NYC, running every hour) are undoubtedly the sweetest. Physical comfort advantages aside, you get a wonderful elevated view of our transportation infrastructure. Those high-riding SUV’s seem petty and insignificant when you look down onto their roof racks.

This image reminds me very much of a shot from a subway station in Shanghai, blogged in my younger days. Distant vanishing point to the left, cityscape to the right. This one:

Chinatown bus, Shanghainese angles.
