TTC Open House

This is my last film photo blog for a couple of weeks, but maybe there will be some digital/smartphone shots rom Croatia.

Recently, the TTC held an open house at one of its maintenance facilities. A fascinating tour!

All images taken with my Nikon F2A and 20mm/f2.8 Nikkor lens on Eastman Double-X film.

 

The Subway Tunnel of Memory

Two more images from the rail museum in Halton. In one of the barns they have two old TTC subway cars. I remember riding these models when I first came to Toronto in the early 1980’s. Now they live on in a permanent twilight. Weird, and a bit sad to see them empty.

2018

My first post for 2018. I thought this image worked for the first day of the year. Hoping things are looking up.

Above the Subway

I’ve always found the outdoor/above ground subway stations in Toronto fascinating, especially ones (like Rosedale station below) on the oldest part of what is now called Line 1.

Surreal

The bus stop where I catch the bus to work every day is in front of an apartment building, and sometimes discarded furniture is found in the general area. For the last few days this old vinyl chair has been sitting at the stop, almost inviting people to have a seat waiting for the bus. This morning at 5:45 am it was covered in frost.
