Union Station ramble

The last day my mother and I had for taking pictures was December 28th, and we decided to go to check out Union Station. This is a very famous piece of civil architecture which I had never taken the time to explore at all so it was ripe for a photo walk. I was a little worried that we would be accosted by guards for taking pictures as seems to be so common these days, but in the end this turned out to be a non issue. We drove on out, found some parking an started exploring. The station is a large, but not overwhelmingly so, structure which seemed to my uneducated eye to mix a few different styles of architecture. “The structure combines Dutch Colonial Revival Style architecture (the suggestion of the Dutch born Jan van der Linden), Mission Revival, and Streamline Moderne style, with architectural details such as eight-pointed stars.(from the wikipedia article on the station) Not knowing any better I’ll take Wikipedia at its word on this. It was a beautiful sunny day and there was much to take pictures of so we had a great time and soon enough ran out of energy. I imagine there is still much to find that we didn’t but I’ll save those pictures for another time.
