Chattanooga Terminal Station Architecture

If anyone reading this blog has been to Chattanooga and visited the old railroad terminal station then they probably admired the spacious interior and beautiful ceiling. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Beaux-Arts style building was built in 1909, was featured in Glenn Miller’s song “Chattanooga Choo Choo” of 1941, and currently lives on as a tourist destination of antique trains, restaurants, and hotel.

Attracted by the grand visual field, I set up several photographs of the depot’s ceiling and tried to capture interesting elements of the huge area. Complimenting the frame were the curved lines and mix of old school lighting and natural lighting.

If ever in the area, this is an interesting stop for the photographer and tourist alike.

What conjures more imagery in an urban environment than a brightly lit theater at night? Notes Of Light Photography would like to submit these photos of the beautiful Tivoli Theater in Chattanooga for the weekly theme of street life.

Although the Tivoli Theater resides not only on a prominent spot on Broad Street but also in the hearts of generations of Chattanoogans, the scene depicted is easily recognizable from our own memories and could be from any city we imagine.

These shots were taken at 4/10 of a second at f7.1 for the image with the blurred car, and 1/50 of a second at f2.0 for the image with the pedestrians.
