La Mesa Depot – San Diego, CA


La Mesa Depot located in La Messa city (San Diego, California) is one of the oldest train stations; built in 1894 and now is a historical landmark. There is a nice train (Mojave Northern #3) which is out of service now and it is used as a landmark for visitors to see, it is a convienit place for photography as it is open and free for public and parking there is so easy. I took many pictures but for now I’m sharing the one I processed. This time I liked to do selective sharpening and Gaussian blurring around the train to give that tilt and shift effect then apply Lomo effect to the whole image. I will share the rest of the pictures in a separate post or maybe update this one. I think I’m just s so excited to share it now without waiting so long.

  1. Hi! Do you sell your work by any chance? We are military and lived in La Mesa (returning again soon!) for 7 years. I have memories of my little one playing on that train. We have begun a collection of painting, photographs and such from the different places we have lived. La Mesa has proven to be a difficult one to get. I can get ones of the Coronado bridge all day long, but I’d really love to have something from La Mesa. I’d be mostly interested in #1 or #3… although I love them all. Let me know if you’d consider selling a digital copy or even better maybe mail one with a mat and your signature on the mat! Thanks so much for considering it!
