Outstanding night shot Michelle especially with a point and shoot camera, sometimes makes you wonder if you need the big SLR's when you can get shots like this from a camera that you can just put in your pocket. #10520692

30th Street Station is the main railroad station in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The station opened in 1933, shortly after the peak of expansion by the former Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR), which was headquartered in Philadelphia. Originally known as Pennsylvania Station–30th Street, the station is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its design was influenced by the Northeast Corridor electrification that allowed trains to pass beneath the station without exposing passengers to soot as steam engines of earlier times had.
I had a Red Cross volunteers meeting just across the bridge (on which I was standing to shoot this) last night and shot this with my p&s on the way back to the station.
