Chicago 2014-07-13

Free to pass this way, $2.25 to get back in. A few cities have no barriers on the transit system but passengers are subject to spot checks of their tickets. St. Louis and Berlin are examples. Most, however, are not so trusting, as shown here in Chicago.

Still scraping for material and probably won't get out to shoot new stuff until Saturday. I think this one is okay, though. It's got some urban rhythm.

d'accord avec le post de le Cieldequimper ;)) Faudrait savoir ce qui le plus cher : le controle dans les trains/metros ou de mettre des barrieres

En effet c'est de la surimpression et pour la plage, en France on dit "sous les pavés, la plage" ;))

We have buses that's about it. Sort of a 'little-big city'.

Those gates are very familiar to me. I always carried my pass while working in Chicago. I took the train or "El" to the airport when I'd fly home. There was a station directly under the building I worked in.

To answer your question about the sunset in Phoenix, I don't believe we had a pollution warning this week but the monsoon does stir up a lot of dust in the air which helps to create those dramatic sunsets.

It does have quite an urban feel to it.

Metro loses a lot of money on Metro sneak-aboards. I think that's why they're initiating smart cards.
