I had the honor to be a part of the team that created The Tide light rail and the Slover Library and now part of the turnaround at Elizabeth River Crossings. Couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture all three in one photo.
The Tide light rail at the EVMC/Ft Norfolk station.
The magic button for opening the doors on Norfolk Virginia’s light rail system “The Tide”. You’ve got to be in the present and ready to press when it turns green or you’ll find your self on the way to the next stop. iPhone 5s.
Today’s challenge was “Knobby” so I spotted this tactile mat at the light rail pedestrian crossing on Monticello Avenue in Norfolk Virginia on my way to the office. The early morning sunlight provided nice shadows. Canon 5D Mark II, 1/250 sec @ f/5.0, ISO 100 zoom at 95mm focal length.
The Tide #407 arrives at the Newtown Station, the City’s eastern most border. Hopefully we’ll see Virginia Beach commit to an extension to the Oceanfront in 2014 giving the The Tide another 12 miles of running room. Canon G11, 1/6 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200.
The Tide light rail leaves the MacArthur Plaza Station with the downtown Norfolk skyline as a back drop. Canon 5D Mark II, 4 second exposure @ f/11.0, ISO 100, 24mm focal length.
