Three Views Of One Station


I always drive past the train station and think how nice the building looks with the lights on. As I drive home, in day light, I always think how small and plain the train station looks. Today, I decided to take comparison photos. At 6:10 I took the photo above. At 6:20, the photo below.

Finally, the image below was taken at 3:20pm. I was fortunate to have a train pass at the same time as I snapped the photo; however, I still believe the train station is at its most interesting in the early morning.

love the progression of the shots...I'm torn between the first and last one with the moving train. We need to find a really cool train station and do a shoot...maybe in DC, grand central!

i love trainstations because i love imagining where people are going or coming and why. i looks like its straight out of a movie, what a cute train station. me being a city dweller, im so use to the oversized massive, very busy and overwhelming stations.

Well, everyone else has said it all! I liked your idea of photographing the train station at different times. I love the one of the train whizzing by...but also liked the lighting in #2. Whenever I pass this station and see cars parked in the lot, I wonder who the people are and where they are going. I like Jayme's idea...how about Union Station in D.C.? :-)
