Dark Footscray day

This is the first time I'd ever been to this much photographed and somewhat maligned Melbourne train station. I have to admit I didn't really intend to take any shots of it but I had to wait for one of my mates to arrive and got completely drawn into getting my camera out and having a snap. It's a weird thing......it doesn't really fit in with the character of Footscray, which generally drips with character, it doesn't seem to serve any purpose other than shade, in a city that begs shelter from the wind and rain, and although the contrast looks ok in black and white the colours are otherwise a little dull.

 

You have to admit....it's kinda photogenic though.
