So Part I ended when we left Sweet. Really nice place by the way.
We then walked down the street to check out Union Station. I've been there a couple times before, but just passing through. I recalled the enormous lobby area. This is one of those building they dress up during the holidays and is a landmark in Worcester. There are also two restaurants on either end of the large lobby area which offer great food and drinks.
When you enter the front doors you come upon this large lobby area. Fortunately we were there mid day so there really weren't many people walking about.
Then you walk further and that is where you can purchase tickets, check schedules and to hang out for a bit indoors as they have places to sit. You can then walk upstairs to get to the tracks.
This train was sitting there, but as we weren't getting on it we just headed back downstairs.
Once we left Union Station we decided to head over to the parking lots over Mezcal (used to be Shbooms) to get a different perspective of Worcester. It was pretty cold up there and clearly had not been taken care of, but I'd never been up there so we were able to get a few photos. One on side you have the courthouse and the DCU center, on the other St. Vincents Hospital and on the other the highway.
Its here that I decided to try a couple of the custom modes on the X-E2. I had read that it had miniature mode built in, so I figured better now than never. These are straight out of the camera without any editing. How fun!
That's the corner intersection in front of the DCU center.
This next one is one of the parking lots for St. Vincent's Parking Lot.
This one is of the parking lot behind our building. Fun camera mode.
It was much colder up there than during the other parts of the walk so I just tried to find a few things to take photos of although this roof parking area was rather barren with piles of snow everywhere. Here are some random photos I took before I decided it was ready to go.
