'L' Train Platform

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

Waiting for an 'L’ Train alongside a highway near Rush Memorial Hospital, just south and east of downtown Chicago.

On a side note a necessary change in the application that powers this blog updated the ID element of every single post within the Atom feed — this was a response to a bit of short sightedness on my part when I created the ID schema. Long story short, every item in the feed is probably marked as new. Sorry :) Mark them all as read and it won’t happen again. Swear.

  • like your focus choice here. gives me as the viewer that sense of standing in the shadows watching almost as if i shouldn’t be.

  • no worries.. i thought you were posting 30 days in advance.. :D this is an excellent shot, i very much like how you got this one.. :)

  • nice composition, the dof if fine and makes the image fascinating. I like the minimal and cold colours, too.
