Today in the art of transit

photo by Marciana Verquist, via Flickr

It may be a freight train and not transit, but it’s still an awesome photo taken last month in the West Bottoms part of Kansas City. The vibrancy of the colors and the light on the brick buildings really caught my eye, along with the slight blur that brings the movement of the train to life. The image was created by blending several photos together — a technique known as high dynamic range imaging.
