above: commuter train – Chicago suburbs 2016
I’d been wanting to photograph the new 606 trail in Chicago since it officially opened to the public in 2016. So one very snowy night a few weeks ago, I stopped to make the image at the top of a Blue Line train heading out of the city where it crosses over the 606 at Milwaukee. Ave.
The image above is a Metra commuter train heading south out of the Homewood, IL station on a cold, late November evening last year.
The trains leave only the barest traces of themselves in these images primarily because of the long exposures that I used.
