Down by the Station and Welcome Sunshine

Down by the Paso Robles Train Station


This afternoon I was just leaving an appointment around 5 PM on Seventh and Pine when I heard the Amtrak train coming into the station. I managed to get my camera out before the train was completely out of sight.

I walked as fast as I could hoping to get to the depot for some other closer shots. I was in luck. One of the boarding passengers didn't have all her luggage aboard yet. As she was rushing toward the open door, I noticed she had dropped a scarf. I ran to pick it up for her, but she was so flustered about her luggage she almost didn't notice me trying to hand it to her. I wanted to give it to her so I could finish getting my photos before the train pulled away again.

The lady and her escort finally took the scarf and I turned north again to take this photo of the train while it was stopped. Notice the sign for the Paso Robles Depot.

I welcomed the sunshine today after yesterday's rain. This is how my usual photo spot across the street looked at about 11:30 AM.

By 2 PM the scene had changed. You can see the contrail high in the photo.

At 4:20 when I left for my appointment,  the sky looked like this. The bright sun was behind the tree trunk of the oak.

When I came home about 5:15 PM, the sun was ready to say goodbye.

Kind of a mellow sunset, don't you think?
