TriMet Bus Stop ID 5020

I've decided to start a series of photos, an intermittent series I suppose I should call it, that involves TriMet stops. Here's the first one which I decided to make into a black and white photo using iPhoto.

I took this Tuesday at about 5:45 p.m. as I waited to catch the #15. Instead of going west towards home, I traveled east to Nostrana to meet Lamont so that we could eat dinner where Leland and Lindsay were working. Fun, great company and great food.

I've got to wonder, just what does "Stop is on the near side of the intersection" mean?

Re: nearside, if you are walking in the direction of traffic at an intersection, and the stop is before you cross the street, it is on the nearside. If the stop is after you cross the street it is farside.

I used to take the 15 from the east side (Gateway area) to my job downtown when I couldn't catch the 16.

Most of the crazies got on a few stops after me and got off at the same stop I did. Made for some interesting rides.

Really like the photo! I posted a little blog post about it... hope it's ok to feature a really small picture of it on my blog post and tell readers to see the full size one @ your blog :)

Christian, I don't have a problem with that, but I wish I knew how to find your blog so that I could see it there. Could you provide a link, please? Thanks.
