East Train Station

Now that on the west side of town there’s a sleek, new station few people use this older one. It only serves local and semi-local trains. No high speed trains come here and more and more those are the trains most people take. Still if you want to go off the beaten track you’ve got to take a slower train.

January CDP Theme Day

Photo(s) of the Year

Happy New Year!

As is the tradition with City Daily Photo, bloggers are challenged to post based on a theme. In January our theme has been “Photo of the Year.” On the CDP website I saw one photographer comment that he was going to make a collage and I thought “great idea” (and easier). So I’ve chosen a few photos of new discoveries or experiences that were particular to 2014.

If you want to see more photos from the CDP community, click here. There are great photos from all over the world.

This woman sells used clothes on a street near campus. She’s part of the neighborhood and though she clearly is needy, there’s nothing pathetic about her. She tends to her business and somehow survives. She’s got drive and dignity.

Last week I did give her a bag full of old clothes to add to her inventory. As an outsider, I don’t feel I should ask her story. It seems insensitive to ask, even if I could, for her to give a stranger an account of how she wound up here, scraping by. I do wonder though.
