Chicago - June 17, 2008 - Watch Out For Trains

Chicago, June 17, 2008

Waiting for my train, South Shore #12, scheduled to depart Carroll Avenue at Michigan City at 6:20am.

On the right, #12 arrives from South Bend as a two-car train. Six more cars headed by car 3, on the left, will be coupled to the rear, and the whole train will be pretty well filled by the time the last passengers board at Hegewisch, an hour and five minutes later.

Random shots taken while walking from the 57th Street Metra Station to the University of Chicago's Center for Advanced Medicine.

Downtown at the El station at Adams & Wabash

"But what about parking?" queried the car-dependent Hoosier in a quavering voice.

"Oh, there's plenty of parking," I replied.

"Just be prepared to pay for it!"

"Didn't you notice all the public transportation?" Silly Hoosier.

My time is at hand. To catch my train, that is.

People were dropping bills in this guy's bucket, and he was doing his best to give them their money's worth. Pretty good.

Back at Carroll Avenue, Michigan City. On time. Cost from Millennium Park Station, one way, senior fare: $3.90
My web site, lots of urban and rural photos and other odds and ends.

I'm generally optimistic, even if I do take breaks to brood now and then.

God I love Chicago. These pics are great...

Geez. I'm so jealous of anyone that even lives there. One of the the best places I've visited in my whole life...can't wait til I live there one day.

Looks great! I took some pics of Chicago (I rode the train in from the North instead!). They're not as good as yours but I've got some different shots that I may post later!

Awesome photos!

Thank you for not being a car dependent Hoosier
