The art of transit

photo by Eddy Mansoor, via Flickr

Here’s a great tilt-shift photo of a bus in Malaysia. It was taken with a Canon EOS 7D and processed with Photoshop. Tilt-shift processing and/or lenses changes the focus, making images appear to be miniaturized. Several iPhone apps allow you to do this with an image on the phone, including Instagram and Camera+. There’s a grainy example after the jump of a photo of a bus I shot recently from Metro headquarters. And here’s Eddy’s photo and video blog for other examples of his work.

To submit a photo for the Art of Transit, post it to Metro’s Flickr group, email it to or Tweet it to @metrolosangeles with an #artoftransit hashtag. Many of the photos we’ve featured can be seen in these galleries on Flickr.
