Evening Rush, Red Line

During the first day of the blizzard I was heading home and decided to take some pictures on the platform at the State and Lake subway.  As I started shooting, a CTA employee standing to my right immediately demanded I put my camera away.  The man approaching in the blue scarf came to my defense and questioned the logic of her request.  Since I have been aware that the CTA frowns upon the use of cameras, I didn't argue with her, but instead kindly put my camera away.  I need to look into the transit authority's policies on photography in more detail.  This is a good example of making sure you are constantly aware of your surroundings.  I was able to get a few shots in before I was reprimanded, but next time I'll try shooting from the hip.


  1. Really? Somebody scolded you for taking pictures.

  2.'ve brought back good memories!
