The rhythm of the place

So, I concentrated on the top of the building, while my friend Ehpem was looking down lower. I guess between us, we had the place covered, photographically speaking.

(If you haven’t looked at Ehpem’s post, you really should. He got a creepy image at the theater.)

There are many here among us

Our photography class from the Los Angeles Center for Photography went on a field trip to Union Station. That’s where I found this scene, of stairs and ramps leading to the train platform.

This shot and this one are thematically related. At least to me. And I may not be really all that reliable.

His day had already begun


At six o’clock in the morning, most of the people at the pier were either photographers or workers getting ready for a busy day at the amusement park rides. Both are represented here. In a way.

Shoe Shopper


A woman briefly considers the shoes, but then moves on.

All players welcome


There’s a piano at Union Station, with a sign inviting people to step up and play.

This woman had just finished playing, with that little girl next to her the whole time.  The rest of their family was close by, obviously proud of what was going on. And it was a privilege for me to get to share in their afternoon, if only for a single moment.
