Last week, I decided to take the streetcar downtown to work. I had a date and didn't want to end up with two cars.
So, I boarded the St. Charles streetcar for a leisurely commute, planning to read the newspaper on the ride.
This adorable little girl who sat in front of me had her head pressed against the glass, seemingly mesmerized by the houses and scenery along the Avenue.
The cars have a gentle roll and pleasant clanging, along with breezes from the open windows that make for enjoyable ride.
I took these pictures with my cell phone. Initially shy, she quickly warmed to me. When she got off the streetcar with her mother and baby sister, she looked over her shoulder to say goodbye.
