Union Station IV
This is another shot from Union Station made while studying with Sam Abell.
I feel a fondness for this shot as it is the only scene that I was able to capture in sunshine for the entire visit to LA.
The setting sun peeked out beneath a cloud for about 10 minutes and I made a few quick shots, as well as trying to compose this scene and wait for something to happen.
The somethings that happened were people and a pigeon that walked by and a gap of light opened up in the shadow near the base of the pillar behind the bench.
Minor improvements, but a better picture than where I started from.
My friend Melinda Green Harvey was also on the course, and you might want to check her posts for some different approaches to interpreting the class.
A friend of Melinda’s drove us around one day while a torrent of rain hammered from the sky trying to make us and LA one with the Pacific Ocean.
We set out to see the usual sights, none of which were visible through the rain, not even big ones from very close.
I got out to take pictures of the unseen Hollywood sign and I don’t think I have ever been so wet so quickly with my clothes on, apart from falling in off a dock.
Even my camera shut down. I thought for good, but it came back to life the next day, just in time for me to use it on the course.
So this short moment of sun was more welcome than usual.
