Your humble North by Northwester correspondent who asked you at one point to Please Photograph Transit wanted to rekindle our passion for photographing transit w/ Sound Transit’s choice of a Photo of the Week:
Sound Transit Photo of the Week
Sound Transit Photo
Photo for week of April 17, 2015
The fashionable ride
You already knew that Link was fashionable, but a photo shoot at SODO Station this week made it official. The photo shoot was for Seattle Fashion Week, June 11-13, to encourage people to take transit to the show.
Food for thought folks… hopefully helping you advocate for transit in a non-confrontational, collaborative and artistic way.

Came across this content today from i-sustain showing clearly how 200 people would take 177 cars stretching a long way on 5 lanes of traffic (35+ rows of vehicles) or three buses. Or with some standing up, one light rail train.
In early 2012, “i-SUSTAIN conceived and organized the Commuter Tookit Photo Shoot to get the images for the Commuter Toolkit poster and associated website. The photo shoot involved shutting down a main downtown Seattle street for several hours early on a Sunday morning to set up the photo shoot with hundreds of volunteers.” Still a powerful piece of transit photography several years later.
Folks, we have one political party representing a side of the aisle that sure talks a lot about “congestion relief”. Said political party might put up a fight to ST3 & Community Transit’s local option. Let’s remind all legislators what congestion relief actually looks like, muscle any & all roadblocks out of the way, and let’s get ST3 & Community Transit on the ballot.
Let’s resolve in 2015 to show the truth that if you want congestion relief, please support your local mass transit providers. Thank you.
