I guess this station has seen busier times... A fine documentation of transportation history here...

Nice to see your California shots. I'm enjoying your Portfolio. The Santa Rosa station is perfectly done in a monotone.

Very sentimental mood :) I think those old unused ways spread a melancholic feeling.

I can feel the sadness and history in this photo. I think black and white is a good mood for it. Perhaps melancholic is the best term, as Paco suggested. I enjoy seeing your photos- thanks for sharing!

Exceptional capture and perfect in greyscale. Looks as if it could have been taken years ago.

Such an atmosphere of the forlorn... great and effective angle! Evocative and story-telling!
