Photo-finish Friday: great timing

Great timing. Now that I no longer live in west Los Angeles, the brand new light rail line from there is ready to roll. Of course, it goes right by where I work. Riding it would have meant not having to fight traffic or pay for parking. But no, we must wait for these improvements until they are no longer of use to us.

Above is a shiny new car I would have ridden to get to work, at a stop on Figueroa, which I've watched under construction for the past two years. Who knows what other improvements are in store for this city now that I'm retiring and leaving town for good.

Photo-finish Friday is the bright idea of Leah Utas over at The Goat’s Lunchpail.

Coming up: Roger Pocock, Curly: A Tale of the Arizona Desert (1905)


  1. Its always the way!.......If you need something, guaranteed, it will come along, just in time for you to be unable to use it!Lol

  2. Too bad, Ron. A day late and a dollar short they say. You can always take a test run to see how it would have been.

  3. Well hopefully others are benefiting. Sorry to hear you missed out.

  4. Detroit has been trying for a line like this since we moved here in 1970. Somehow it never happens even though there would be good usage.

  5. Shiny. I'm sure there's something even better waiting for you.
