MARTA: My Inconvenient Truth
Cheers to Al Gore for creating the internet AND for coining the phrase Inconvenient Truth. Thanks to him, I am able to share my favorite Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) stories and photos with everyone in the WWW (whole wide world). After almost 8 years of riding the train to and from work every day, I have a lot of photographic ammunition stashed away in my camera gun….
P.S. what I really wish I had documented photographically is every commuter dude who has hit on me since the first time I climbed aboard a MARTA bus back in 1992. There would be a definitive dental trend in the depictions of these suitors. And their fascination with my hair is, well, hair-raising…especially when they want to touch it.
takes a long time to get to Candler Park – and doesn’t that pigeon crap add to the annoyance?
first time I ever saw a gun on a MARTA train
Thank goodness the gun was a toy (I hope!) and it was a kid and his dad. MARTA riding requires mindfulness
No smoking on MARTA but feel free to bring your own nunchuks – gosh, I wonder howhe broke his wrist.
Do not sit on MARTA’s steps…unless you want your photo taken and a line drawn through your eyes

MARTA train attire: Black socks and brown shoes go together like yellow seats and blue floors.

Great marketing since all of us MARTA riders go schizophrenic when the train is late
MARTA trying to mesmerize me into calmness with a psychedelic screen saver. Wish they’d use those signs to tell me when the next train was coming.
Black bags are common on MARTA but usually they are not taking up a whole seat and typically they are the plastic ones from the liquor store
well, okay, I was wrong. Here is a liquor store black bag taking up a seat
and here’s one that just might have some liquor in it
MARTA advertisements can help you find a good career
And they can help you earn your degree…but only if you already have really white, perfectly straight teeth
