The art of transit

photo by Steve Hymon/Metro

I took this photo from the platform of a southbound Gold Line train pulling into the South Pasadena station last week. I shot the photo with my Nikon D5100 and then in Photoshop Elements used the “Fresco” function to make it look like a drawing or painting — Mission Street in South Pas has that Americana kind of feel. The image looks better if you click above to enlarge it.
