another snow day, with morning ride on calgary transit. the bus and train ran perfectly under the load of the snow crowds and crappy roads, but the smelly grumpy passengers… oy.
the whole day felt a bit blurry and mindless.
cheerful morning commuters, enjoying some quality time together.
I’m hoping to get my bike back from the shop today, so this should be the last morning train of the year. hopefully.
I threw the 10-20mm überwideangle lens this morning, with the circular polarizing filter, and shot in manual mode.

winter morning bike commute
I slapped the Flip video camera onto the bike for this morning’s ride. Here’s the 43 minute ride, compressed into 5 minutes of video.
a thankfully uncrowded morning train.

anonymous blurs of light stream toward the downtown core during the morning commute.
lines at the Crowfoot C-Train station, in a long exposure. There were maybe a dozen people walking through this shot, rendered invisible by time and light.
Cars slowly crawling along Crowchild Trail, which was backed up bumper-to-bumper all the way from Stoney Trail (nearly at the NW city limits) all the way into downtown. Neither the bus nor train were very crowded this morning. The people of Calgary have chosen cars above all else.
I took the bus and train this morning, chickening out of riding the icy paths – I’ll ride again on Tuesday (yay, long weekends!).
This was the first time I’ve taken the train from the new Crowfoot station. The whole trip, from the minute I stepped onto the bus near my house, to the minute I stepped off the train on campus, took less than half an hour.
Of course, I can ride it in exactly the same time…
