Santa Fe Train Depot - Downtown San Diego

    Newer Older

    This is a panorama-type photo. I don't have a wide enough lens to capture this image, so a stitched photo is the next best thing. It's difficult to do, however, because of all the people walking through, and because of overhanging limbs of trees which required me to get closer than I wanted to. In addition, the security guards were watching me as though I had a bomb in my backpack. They made me feel a bit apprehensive.

    I wanted to capture this structure in the late evening because of the wonderful way the setting sun's light illuminates the interior of the building and shines through the front windows.

    The Santa Fe Train Depot is located downtown San Diego on Broadway. It's a beautiful example of the Spanish Mission style of architecture. The structure was built in 1915.

      Beautiful job!! I know what you mean, I almost feel like I'm being put on the terrorist watch list when I go out with my camera anymore( and because the 70-200mm is my favorite lens, it's impossible to be inconspicuous. Great job, your work is very good!

      If you DID have a wide enough lens, there would be lots of distortion, convergence, etc. This is so cool!

      The sense of repose that you achieve from these colors is marvelous.
