Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Public Transportation

091615B&W_2 This week’s topic is Public Transportation.  Anything that is used as public transportation.  Can be the size of a single person taxi (car or bike) to a huge Ocean Liner to an escalator to elevator or moving walks.  There are all sorts of ways to transport people.  Use your imagination.  And think, when don’t you have to work to move from one place to another.  Something else is using energy to move you.  Have fun and use your imagination and creativity with this topic.

For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list at below.  Be creative and challenge yourself.  Look for contrast or highly textured subjects to shoot.

            1. They now have a fun slide with a 747, the air museum and a whole different building for a space museum. They have a 747 out front so you can actually walk under it and around it and lots of planes outside too. So if you can park and just have fun. It does cost to go into the different museums though.

  1. I have always loved escalator photos for some reason, but I’ve never really stopped to take one of my own. One of my favorite things about these challenges is how they help me realize I should slow down and look around more. So I guess that’s no surprise then that I really appreciate the escalator photo here, especially the composition. 🙂
    Thanks so much for the feature for last week’s challenge!


  2. I was in such a hurry this morning that I didn’t get a chance to say how much I like your pictures today. Such variety from the stylistic patterns of the airline seats and escalator.to the human angle of the passengers on the train. It killed me to take the color out of mine. I had posted them all before I noticed (once again) it was a B&W challenge. So I took them all down, worked on them and reposted. I may do them in color in another blog.

      1. It was the black and white. Two of my functions were cancelled due to rain today, so perhaps I will recolorize them and post in a different post. Wish I’d kept the color versions instead of converting them! I can go back to the originals, though.


I adore comments! Thanks for stopping by to visit.
