Warning: This is a shameless self promotion.
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, where I serve as the director of communications, hosts an annual photo contest that we are actually quite proud of.
There are a couple of unique aspects to this photo contest. First, while it celebrates the work of state department of transportation photographers, AASHTO last year opened the competition to the general public. And, while many of my colleagues think roads and bridges and buses and trains are beautiful, this contest attempts to emphasize the people who use the transportation system. Hence, the photo contest name — “Faces of Transportation.”
So, if you enjoy taking photos, or know someone who does, consider entering the photo contest. And, as you use the transportation system look around. There are faces all around you.
