Very nice image of a Metrolink train at the Pomona station earlier this month. I really like the black and white — makes the clouds look a lot more dramatic.

I know there was thunder and lightning south of the San Gabriel Mountains last evening. But it was nothing compared to the lightning display in the Mojave Desert along U.S. 395 and California 14 last night — a show I got to see while returning from a long weekend in Mammoth Lakes. Riding shotgun, and holding my finger down on the shutter release of my Nikon D5000, I captured the above shot north of Lancaster along the 14.

The Eastern Sierra, btw, got another nice dusting of snow over the weekend but the fall colors are still excellent, at least for a few more days.

Roger took this beautiful photo last month in Singapore. Peruse through Roger’s photostream at the link above — there are a lot of great photos of street scenes in Singapore.

I’m a sucker for Golden Gate Bridge photos — I think this is the fourth or fifth one we’ve run in “art of transit” since this past summer. And I guarantee there will be more coming. I like this one because it isolates one portion of the bridge instead of trying to show the whole structure.

The photo was taken in the Whitehall part of London. Photos of similar London Transport signs are ubiquitous on Flickr and the web — but they’re usually in color. I like this black-and-white treatment.

Numerous comments on Flickr praised the photographer for the mood, perspective and composition of this photo. I find the photographer guilty on all counts! Wonderful photo.

This photo may not be transportation specific, but it’s still a great sepia shot of downtown L.A. that also gives you an idea of how un-Manhattan like the place is. Keep submitting those L.A. area photos, people!

Nice shot of the 110 freeway at night in downtown L.A. And I’m pleased to see we’re finally getting a few more submissions from the L.A. area.

Good shot of the San Francisco end of the Bay Bridge. We have pretty bridges in So Cal, too. That would look good on The Source. Hint, hint.
