Day Begins The Turn To Night

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 50mm ISO 320 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

Day begins to turn to night as the shadows lengthen outside of the Green Street campus of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, in Pasadena, California.  I like the detail surrounding the windows on this building, it seems to befit a stately old institution.  When I look at this image I anticipate hearing and seeing a gaggle of young men and young women coming out the doors, wearing checked pants, white coats and tall, white toques, chattering in French.  Alas, rather than the famous institution by the same name in Paris, France, this is but a trade school in the United States, that has inundated the airwaves with commercials romanticizing life in a most unromantic place, a hot, noisy, sometimes dangerous kitchen.
