I’m pretty certain that I wouldn’t get half the shots I do if I didn’t have such an awesome business partner. We had just finished up a day of meetings in LA and he was ready to get us to the airport when I hit him with “Umm… so, there is a really cool train station.”…and, as much as he wanted to get out of the onslaught of afternoon LA traffic, he kindly agreed. So we ended up here…Union Station. To be honest, I didn’t even know anything like this still existed. It’s like you stepped into a Cary Grant movie, where he is sitting at some old oak wooden bar drinking a Gibson (which probably sounds better than it tastes) and waiting to board a train with a cool name like “20th Century Limited”. A worker told me that it opened in 1939 with a ceremony that was attended by half a million people and, today, it is still the biggest train station in the western United States. Oh yeah, they have that whole “no tripod” rule, but there is enough light where you don’t really need one. They also seem to have a “can’t sit too long in those comfy chairs over at the right” rule. We never quite figured that one out.
