The Doppler Effect (Can You Hear It?)

We visited the Baltimore Street Car Museum. Actually, we stumbled upon it thanks to Google's incorrect directions to a pizza joint we wanted to try. We had pizza, then went back to take some photos.


I was standing in this car when one of the custodians hopped on and said he was taking it down the track, and I could either hop off or stay on. I choose to stay on remembering that there were some cars sitting on the side of the tracks down the way. This is the resulting shot.


See where this picture was taken. [?]
