Here it is…another Tuesday, another gray day. At least the ‘L’ images all have a consistent feel, right? Today was frigid so I took advantage of the (somewhat) warmth of the train and traveled along the entire red line as well as the yellow line. To get to the very short yellow line, which takes you to Skokie, you have to transfer from either the red or purple line and since I was already planning to shoot from the red line it just made sense.
I have never taken any line of the ‘L’ north of the Addison stop so grabbing the yellow line was interesting. There are only two stops, both in Skokie, a near north suburb. But the difference in the atmosphere is immediate. I felt like I was in a rural area shortly after the train left the Howard stop. I know, that sounds absolutely ridiculous considering there is nothing rural about Skokie. But shortly after we left the station and headed under a couple tunnels the train was surrounded by hills on both sides. Hills in Illinois…how is that possible?! Clearly they were man-made. Everything definitely looks more suburban, initially we were surrounded by trees and homes and then nothing but high tension power lines, which made for an interesting shot.
Here’s your little peak at the yellow line…
