PGE Park MAX Station
While I hardly ever ride the MAX, I am nevertheless fascinated by it, the smoothness with which it moves along its tracks, its almost silent motion whether you're inside or outside, how packed with people the cars can be after work. I ride by the PGE Park station on my way home most every day. I took this shot of it through my bus window Wednesday. See the park's red-neon-lettered sign reflected in the bus window? It's almost dead center in the photo, at the left end of the shelter. See how the sign at the front of the MAX car has a blue background? It's part of the Blue Line, which goes east and west. This particular one is headed west to Hillsboro. There's another sign of spring in this photo, too, those huge concrete tubs filled with daffodils. I wonder if anyone has time to notice them?
