Metro Mix

Well done

I was underground again for a bit this past weekend, as I travelled to and fro with the local metro, and found some interesting elements that I wanted to share with you. Enjoy!

Universitat

Shiny surfaces abound, as you can see! It’s always fun to shoot those. What is a challenge, is to try to get no people in the shots. I’ve managed quite a few, but at times, they were simply unavoidable, as you’ll see further down…

Line play

There are big differences between the various stations, here in Barcelona, some are very new, modern and brightly lit, others are a fair bit older and much darker, or even in serious disrepair.

Going down

Stairs and tunnels are always photogenic, I find. What do you think?

Espanya

Check out the differences in the exits at Espanya (above) and Urquinaona stations (further down)…

Urquinaona

I love these old gates – quite lace-like, when viewed close up. It will be a pity when they’re gone, although it might be some time yet, before that happens!

Lace-like

Reflections, I love them! The exit at Urquinaona is quite dark, but the overhead lights are reflected so nicely on the banisters of the stairs, that I just had to show you. Hope you like!

Tomorrow I’ll be showing you details of an old shop. See you then? Fins demà!

    Hey! Love the photos, I’ve been past those places and never noticed the little details. I also love the modernist design above the metro tunnels in the older stations, like Fontana. I’m certainly more comfortable in the wider Barcelona metro than on the London tube, anyway!

      Thanks! Glad you like the photos! Yes, the designs in Fontana station are lovely, as are those in many other stations… it’s just a matter of taking the time to see what’s around us. :)

Tell me what you think...
