MetroLink Subway Zooming By

This is the underground MetroLink station at Forest Park Parkway and Skinker - across the street from Washington University. I recently spent eight weeks on a trip wandering around Uruguay, Argentina and Chile. The portion where I felt the most unsafe? The return journey on Metrolink between the airport and my neighborhood.

But it all worked out. And really, there hasn't been a gunfight at the Delmar station for more than a year, and before I left helicopters started patroling the area to scare away the groups of teenagers. Besides, it makes for some interesting photo opportunities.

Taken with the Canon G10, f/8.0, ISO 100, 1 second shutter speed.

Wow - I can feel the whoosh of the train! Re: Safety - I have a friend who grew up in a rough part of Manhattan. She moved to St. Louis and was promptly mugged the first time in her life, twice in one month.

That's really pretty disturbing about feeling safe. Nice shot though.
