Angel Hernandez borrowed a friend’s Nikon D70 recently to check out the digital camera and took this shot of the glass ceiling of the Nick Patsaouras Transit Plaza at Union Station while on the escalator and headed toward his train. Good eye, Angel!

The shutter speed was 1/160th of a second with a focal length of 28mm and an aperture of f/6.3.
