This picture is my submittal for Creative Photography Contest #13. We are in the subterranean passageway underneath the tracks at Union Station in
This is a slightly strange spatial view that the numerous weekday commuters do not notice on the way to their daily travails. Too many people, too little time to pay attention to the portal itself. But on a Saturday, when the place is devoid of the daily grind, it offers a differing sense. The ovoid shape is clearer, and the horizontal silver trim slivers seem to expand endlessly toward the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.
The particulars are attention grabbing, even though the picture wasn’t staged. Just the Canon digital point and shoot with the flash on and no other finesse. The shot is slightly tilted as I propped the camera on the ‘chair arm, and the soft chartreuse glow from the stainless steel planks is slightly eerie. Yet oddly eye-catching. You feel compelled to keep moving until you make your escape into the natural white light with the conductor inviting you onto the train.
Thanks Roger and judges for this week’s invite!
