The Red Line at 100

The Red Line is 100 today! The Cambridge Tunnel opened from Harvard to Park Street Under on March 23, 2012.

I'm going to celebrate by going out and taking pictures and people-watching on the Red Line. There will be pictures and history later!

Photography: what I've been up to lately

Agricultural Branch (part of the now-dissolved Old Colony Railroad) bridge over Foss Reservoir in Framingham. I took this picture from the back seat at 65 mph.

True construction is to begin soon at Yawkey:

Green Line Extension video

For my film class last semester, my final project was a short video about the Green Line Extension into Somerville and Medford. The GLX is a legal commitment by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as part of environmental mitigation for the Big Dig. I'll have more commentary eventually, but for now here it is. Many thanks to Katherine Fichter (GLX Project Manager, MassDOT), Ken Krause (Medford Green Line Neighborhood Alliance), Dennis Sullivan (Board of Aldermen, Somerville) and Sophia Hartdegen (Somerville resident) for their time and patience!
