The Eyes of Plywood Mars
This is another digital picture that I shot more than a decade ago, and another situation where I was waiting for a train. I used to rely on SEPTA’s regional railway to get to work. This was before the price and the delays became more than I could bear. Wet leaves on the tracks are a common excuse for tardiness.
