Painted Asphalt

In the last 24 hours I've travelled by car, pickup truck, bus and train and I've seen downtown Cleveland, downtown Chicago and the mighty Mississippi River. But I didn't take any pictures of any of those things. Instead, I have this picture of some painted asphalt outside the Amtrak station in Alton Illinois.

I was hoping to have all kinds of great travelling pictures, but I left on a bus from Cleveland at midnight, arrived in Chicago around 6:00 AM, had to get to the track to get on a train at about 6:45, and when I got off the train and saw what I thought would make a great shot of one of the Amtrak employees standing on the steps of the train as it pulled away, I didn't have time to pull my camera out of the bag and take a picture. Travelling by myself was a little to hectic to make a good photo shoot.

But while I was waiting for Mark's aunt and uncle to pick me up at the station, I did look down and think this looked like an interesting shot. Hopefully the rest of our weekend here in the St. Louis area will provide more picture opportunities.
