Roadway construction has caused me to alter my daily commute, trying to find a way downtown that doesn’t take twice what it used to. The bus regularly gets snarled in traffic, so I opted for the train.
The drawback is that I have to transfer from the train to a bus on the outskirts of downtown. That interrupts my reading, or my train of thought if I am writing a piece for this blog. The plus is that the rail route is much more scenic, including a bridge over the Rideau River between Vincent Massey Park and Carleton University.
For several mornings I enjoyed the sunshine on the river, the green foliage and the golden dome of St. John’s Ukrainian Catholic Shrine in the distance.
After about a week I remembered to bring my camera, but I’m not happy with the photo. Maybe it is the difference a week makes in the sun’s position. Or the difficulty of taking a picture from a moving train. Or the angle of my seat on that particular trip.
A picture is supposed to be worth a thousand words. I’d only give this one five hundred.
