Sun, Blue Sky and Palm Trees.

Cal-Train at San Mateo, California.

Cal-Train exposed on color slide film, August 24, 2009. In two months time, I'd receive my first digital camera.

I made this image using my Canon EOS 3 with a 20mm lens. This outbound Cal-Train commute had just discharged passengers at the old Southern Pacific station at San Mateo.

I want an iconic modern image that said ‘California’. What better way to do that, than focus on the Cal-Train logo while incorporating the warm blue sky, palm trees, and a reflection of the sun in the window of the train?
