Apologize for the bluish color of this photo, tried to do something about it on photoshop but still didn't get the results I wanted. I gave up and decided to just post the photo.

Anyways, this is the MRT or the Metro Rail Transit. The whole loop runs accross the whole of Manila and has greatly helped commuters especially during rush hour. It runs for around 60kph, pretty slow compared to trains of other countries. But I guess this is better compared to the traffic on the road which runs at average 20kph-30kph!

It is interesting how some cities embrace mass transit while other do not. In my travels it appeared that in Chicago mass transit is a way of life that has been accepted for years. While cities like Atlanta are much slower to accept the inevitable.

Since Zhang Yimou's film "Hero", with Christopher Doyle's amazing photography, there is no need to apologize for the "bluish color" (cast or tint).

I am sure you meant this tint to reflect the cold, dreary atmosphere of this early morning-train! At least, that is the story I would tell. [smile]

Nice picture. Nice composition. Brian.
