Mass Transit that Works: MARTA
We'll never have national mass transit. But we do have many amazing regional systems. Atlanta has MARTA which quickly and efficiently can whisk to key points all over the city for a couple of bucks.
Dear creative Framers this week our challenge is to shoot a mode of transportation. You know trains, trucks, canoes, hot air balloons or anything else that will get you from point A to point B. Most of our transportation is of the common garden (and boring) variety unless you are one of the lucky souls in an exotic location or unique vehicle this week. So think of ways to bring a new perspective to your vehicle of choice. Maybe zoom into a small detail such as the texture of the wheels or the cracked leather seat, or capture an unusual angle or point of view, for example shooting down into a rowboat from a bridge. Or look for something funny, such as 50 people trying and squeeze through one train door during rush hour. Telling a story is ALWAYS a great idea in our photography challenges. Show us how strangers are sleeping on each others’ shoulders on the aeroplane (airplane), or how a dad is teaching his daughter to ride her bicycle, or how a young couple ride together into the sunset on a white horse. We usually think of humans using transportation but remember that also goods and animals – hello fish tube! – are constantly moved around.
