Weekly Photo Challenge: Chaos

shuttle bus lines

Long line-up of shuttle-bus goers on Bloor Street, Toronto. August 2016

On the night of August 27 this year, after a reunion dinner with friends downtown, I was heading back home on the TTC transit system system in Toronto.  On this particular weekend, they were doing track maintenance work on the underground subway and thus shuttle buses were running from Eglinton Station to Yonge & Bloor Station.  This was not anything out of the ordinary as TTC will routinely schedule these maintenance services during the weekend in the summer time.

However, on this visit, after subwaying up from Queen’s Park Station to transfer north to Finch Station, I walked out of the Yonge & Bloor station to find that the shuttle bus line-up stretched all the way from Yonge to past Bay Street!  It was nothing like I had seen before and I remember walking and walking to find the end of the line but still not seeing it until blocks and blocks down the road.  It was crazy how many people were in the line!

Thinking back, it was a funny experience and I am glad I took a quick photo to capture the moment — not the best photo though as it doesn’t show the enormity of the line-up that ensued.  In any case, I happened to bump into a friend who was heading home as well after me (from the same dinner lol; I had to leave early) and so our ride towards Finch was rather pleasant with a companion.  We didn’t have to wait too long for the line to move either considering that the line was the size of a large serpent.

(Not trying to bash the TTC; this photo is a great example of what chaos looks like!) 😉

  2. At least you found some way to link to the concept. I’m not even sure I know what might suit it. It’s not as bad as last week, but I think someone doesn’t get that this is photography, not journalism.

      Well, we have a negative Nancy here. I’m not sure if you understand that this is my personal blog and I can choose to interpret the challenge any way I like. It is a weekly “photo” challenge, challenging us to see if we can find a photo that relates to the theme. If you don’t like my stuff, don’t click here and don’t look at it.

    I’ve had similar experiences where lines go on forever! This is a fun interpretation 😀
