We’ve been running our “art of transit” posts for almost a year. The idea is to feature photography that tells the story of transportation here and elsewhere. There are, after all, some beautiful transit systems across the planet that we can look to for inspiration as Metro continues work on fulfilling its Measure R program. And transpo can be very photogenic.
On the local front, I would love to see more local submissions from our readers. I’m a little surprised we don’t receive more, given that so many people these days have cameras as part of their cell phones. Here are two iPhone photos we recently featured on The Source: this image of a woman on the Gold Line and this photo of a Metro bus at night next to a couple of sporty cars.
How to get the most out of your photos? The New York Times’ tech writer David Pogue last week wrote a very good story about some of the many apps available to transform photos taken on the iPhone’s camera into something special. Most of the better apps are free or cheap and can be used to boost colors, change tones to alter the photo’s mood, stitch together panoramas and even do time lapses.
And check out a few more phone photos after the jump…
