Haarlem Train Station

Sometimes an image rises back up into your mind for no obvious reason. This week, for me, it was the elegant 1908 train station in Haarlem, not far from Amsterdam. Although I often think about the colorful tiles that ornament the station, this daydream found me back on the platform looking out beyond the repeating  arches, so lacy and yet so strong. I shot this photo in both color and in black and white. They are very similar, but today, at least,  the black and white one more accurately captures my momentary reverie.
