I see very here the shooting of a movie with a track race of cars the atmosphere is completely adequate for this kind of scene

This is a great architectural shot. The lighting is perfect. It is good that you're documenting this historic building's last days. The new high-speed rail station will bring an entirely different kind of energy to the place.

David from Detroit is quite right - I totally agree. You know as many times as we came to San Francisco when I was a kid in Roseville, I don't know if I ever came her. I know my son and his wife have and I was talking to them about this the other evening whn you started your series. This is a nice tribute that you are paying Stephen and the documentation is very commendable - and the images, of course, are fantastically done Stephen, as always! DJ

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks so much Denny. Frankly, this place is depressing. Most of the tenants (Amtrak, Greyhound, SamTrans, and others) had already moved on. More than anything else - it was a major location for our unfortunate homeless brothers and sisters to get some rest while staying out of the wet and cold. These poor folks now bed-down on many of the lots and corners in the surrounding area. They've lost the large tile restrooms - about the only hint of dignity they had.

You did well to drag so much colour out of this functional greyness.
