Sacramento, CA

Signs under the pavilion at the newly opened platforms at the Sacramento Valley Station.  Once again, it is the symmetry that takes the front seat in the composition.

Part of the plan for the evening was to photograph the new tunnels and platforms, but I was hoping to gain access to the old railroad buildings in the “Railyard”.  Yes, these are the same railyards that have been in the news this past year as the location the city of Sacramento had tried to convince the Kings basketball team as the best option for a new arena.  Anyhow, while access to the old brick maintenance buildings is not all that difficult, there is an inordinate amount of workers in the area.  At least I now know even with alleged surveillance blanketing the railyards, I won’t be a lone figure in an abandoned area easily spotted on video.

The photograph was taken into Nik Silver EFex Pro 2 for conversion and processing into B&W.
