The CTA Orange Line on the way to Midway Airport. I can't remember when they approved putting advertising boards on the sides of the trains, but I don't think that it looks too bad. There must be somebody at the CTA who decides whether the ads compliment the trains in some way. Makes for interesting photography, to say the least. Not sure if I'll say the same thing if a bunch of wireless phone company ads go up there.

Nice shot, Apple must have paid a lot for that sort of advertising!

The train looks alot more interesting with the ads.

The perspective is interesting. I might've tweaked w/ curves to bring out the blues in the sky and the ads a bit more, but this is still a good shot.

Those iPod ads are everywhere! It looks good, but it's kind of scary to have ads on the outside of the trains too.
