Thanks to bloggers ideflex, Ingrid and A Regular Cup of Joe for playing along. To recap, I posted the picture below and asked for guesses as to what the main object in the photo was. I know these aren’t the best photos I could have taken of the area, but I was breaking in my digital camera I received as a Christmas gift and am still learning how to use the thing.
It didn’t take long for these astute bloggers to figure out this was a light rail car. Below is the picture, oriented the way one would see the object normally.
I snapped this light rail train passing in front of Chase Field in downtown Phoenix. Admittedly, I probably went too heavy on the zoom feature. However, I never really took notice of the bike symbol on the side of the light rail car until I reviewed some of these photos.
Below is a close up of the entrance to Chase Field seconds before the light rail car passed by.
Here is the start of the light rail train.
