At last, I finally have time to work on my own photos

Monday, September 7th, 2009

I finished up the last processing work for the photos I took for the station map photo survey over the past week, so I finally have time to work on the photos I took for myself during that time. Up first is the Blue Line. On September 2nd I was out covering Wood Island to Wonderland, getting photos at most of the stations on that half of the line. The exception was Wood Island, where a work crew was removing the top layer of the platform with some jackhammers. I was not inclined to stay around any longer than I had to to get the map photos I was officially there for. I’ll have to go back another time. The photos I did get, though, start here with the last one on the third row.

Coming soon will be photos of the Red Line, Green Line, and Commuter Rail. The latter will take the longest to do because I think the best way to do it is scrap my existing gallery and create new ones for each line. Otherwise it’s a real pain in the ass to update the existing gallery.

I have no life for the next 2 weeks

And I haven’t had one for the past week either. One of the current projects at CTPS is a photo survey of all the maps at the T’s stations, and guess who one of the main contributors to that project is? Yep, yours truly. I’ve been spending several hours a day out taking photos, and several more hours at home editing them. On top of that, school starts on Tuesday, so I’ll have that to deal with as well. The flip side of having all this work to do is that I’m also photographing the trains while I’m out there, so once I have time to work on those photos I’ll have a bunch of updates to my MBTA pages. In the meantime, though, it’s gonna be a busy couple of weeks.
