First Shot - Escalators into the Station.

First Shot – Escalators into the Station.

Lately I have been raving about the new purchase of my first ever DSLR camera. My just received Canon Rebel T4i and we had our first date with a stroll around Union Station.Union Station has always been a symbol of my transient lifestyle, and even marked the start of my journey to New Zealand. What better place to test out my new baby than the largest, busiest, and most beautiful train station in Washington DC.Opened in 1907, the station features architecture consisting of marble, white granite, and gold leaf and it was a perfect testing ground.Note: Most photos are either un-edited, or edited with a black and white filter only. Let me know what you think of my first shots with my new camera! It will be coming with me on more and more adventures and I love feedback.
