Waiting For The Trolley

SDMTS commuter waits for the bus

At The Bus Stop

        There are some people that, while waiting for a San Diego bus or trolley have a very distinct, unhappy look on their faces. That heavy rainbow frown that is usually reserved for cartoon characters and Disney actors can be seen with regularity on a few public transportation commuters. I really don’t know why because riding the bus is not always torture, in fact it’s usually nice to be able to zone out or listen to music instead of having to drive.

        Riding the trolley is especially pleasant. They are just all around nicer and faster than buses, coming as close to the pacific ocean as Seaport Village. There’s just no reason for these frowns, not when we live in San Diego. San Diego is a great place to live and has an award winning public transportation system. Smile travelers! Both of these pics were taken with my D5000 sitting in my lap, with the LCD flipped down, enabling me to use live view to compose the shots. I don’t use the swivel LCD that often, but when I do need it I’m glad I have it.
