hurrying for the train...

Really, no need for hurry as the train will never leave the station. This is a mural painted on a building just off lower Broadway in Oakland, CA.

Great observation ... it took me a second to realize that that lady is real and not painted ... perfect colors and framing!

Nice image and nice mural. On Sunday night, my son just missed his commuter train--the train was starting to pull out as he arrived. And, the train was early!

@Anita: Argh! It's bad when trains are late, but inexcusable when they're early!!! I'll bet he was really frustrated!
