This is the mouth of my train station (on the work side). There are things that I love about it that in turn make me love my city. I like how deco it is - sort of an homage to Chicago’s yesteryears.
The thing that I most love about it, though, especially at this time of year, is how the light comes through the glass of the awning, broken up by the ribs of the structure, segmenting it out like and orange slice. Through the awning the evening light always looks a little warmer to me.
Maybe that’s the dirt of the glass, though.
