This one is for Jimmy Jimmy... The San Jose Diridon station is planned as a future station for the California High-Speed Rail and second phase of BART extension in Santa Clara County. The depot is in the Italian Renaissance Revival style, with a three-story central section flanked by two-story wings.
The building was designed by Southern Pacific architect, John H. Christie, who had worked on the Southern Pacific remodeling of the Fresno depot in 1915 and later, in 1939, worked on Union Station in Los Angeles. This depot is one of only four Italian Renaissance Revival style depots in California, and the largest surviving depot of the San Francisco–San Jose line. The only other large depot built in California during the 1930s was the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal.
Shot just after sunrise, took 8 images and merged them in PS CS6. I Rule of third applied vertically only. Enjoy...

I do like this subject as stitching numerous images.
Very clinical in its appearance.
The sky appears to have some areas that catch the eye, not sure on lines


Hello Vic! Wonderful bulding, amazing cars, fantastic sky. Nice colours. Good sharpness. Good exposure and capture. Well done!
