The MAX slows to stop on SW Morrison at Pioneer Courthouse Square

DSC_0040p
The MAX train will not completely stop until its eastern end, the one that you can see here, has cleared the sidewalk where these two men walk. I took a whole series of photos as the train crossed the intersection at SW 6th Avenue and SW Morrison Street. It didn't take me too long to decide to just post this one--I like the motion, the numbers of people visible on the sidewalk, the way you can see some of the Macy's store beyond the end of the train as it heads west. Did you notice Santa sitting there on the brick wall? The blurry pedestrians who have crossed at the corner?

I did like the photo alot. I didn't notice the Santa...not until I read your post. I like the colors of the brake lights reflecting off the cobblestone.

There is a lot going on, isn't there? I missed Santa until reading your blurb.

I like the motion, and I missed Santa, lol.

I love the colors, my night shots lose something in the color that yours seems to keep.

This is a very good, vibrant picture! I did see Santa hiding there, but at first I thought he was a guy from some Eastern religion.

Do you notice the banners advertising Shen Yun, a Chinese dance performance that's being performed at the Keller in January? That looks really good. I'm thinking of going.

Excellent shot. Maybe Santa was hiding because these two guys were naughty.
