More about the Trolleys series

I loved this view from the front windows, all the way through to the back of the bus with soft light filling the interior space. I added a layer of water droplets, a close up photograph made on the west coast of Vancouver Island featuring the windshield of our good old 4 runner on a very rainy day. I wanted to pay respect to one of those classic Vancouver cloudbursts – when it rains like crazy –then the sun returns and magically we find ourselves dry again. For some reason, I recall often running in the rain to catch a trolley, then moments later, sitting in a sunny window seat to dry.
