Commuting

My apologies for the drop in photo posting recently and for not selecting a Photo of the Day yesterday. I have actually been working in Baltimore the past couple of weeks, and have had less time to take pictures and post here. In fact, on my last trip I didn’t even bring my camera, so here is a photo taken with my camera phone as I was heading out on Monday morning.

30th Street Station


Location:     Penn Station 30th Street Station (oops, see comments!)
Camera:     LG VX8300

I was really surprised that Penn Station 30th Street Station wasn’t completely crowded at 9:30 am on a Monday morning. Maybe I had just missed the rush, but when I was there, it was comfortably empty and I had no trouble finding a 2-seater on the train.

I have to say though that I will be glad when I’m done with this commuting. Although the train ride to Baltimore itself is only an hour, there’s the time on both ends of traveling back and forth to the train station. A friend of mine is currently commuting every day between Baltimore and Philadelphia, and although she has her reasons for doing this, I will be glad when my mind, body, and soul are all in Philadelphia at once!


Please add your Philadelphia photos to the Metroblogging Philadelphia Flickr group. Readers’ photos will be featured here on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    How embarrassing!! Yes, I meant 30th Street Station. I used to live in Baltimore which has a Penn Station and NYC which has a Penn Station… So I think I’ve started calling all train stations “Penn”! Thanks for the correction.

    As for the overlap, my guess is that we just missed each other because I only arrived at the train station about 5 minutes before getting in line for the train and taking this picture.
