Etoile de Gaulle- Paris, France -Somewhere In Time Weekly Travel Photo.

By Posted in - Europe & France & Inspiration & Paris & Photo Journal & Photography Posts & Photos & Somewhere In Time on February 12th, 2011

Somewhere in Time is a weekly travel photo from around the world. Enjoy!

Ahhhh…the Paris Metro system. I have a strange affinity for trains and subway systems. On my first visit to London I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I rode on the Tube. I thought it was the most amazing metro system I had ever ridden on and I loved London so much it was just the icing on the cake. That was until I went to Paris, then I was really in love – the people, the names of the stops, the beautiful tiled stations, the grungy nasty stations, the extremely elaborate frames on most of the advertisements – each stop was different, beautiful & ugly. I don’t know exactly what it is about underground subways or trains that I like so much. Whenever I board one I feel like I am on the cusp of something and I can’t put my finger directly on it. They make me think about the journey – whether it’s a personal transformation or the literal act of going from one place to the next. Being among a huge crowd yet riding completely alone is a surreal feeling – the feeling that anything can happen. It’s the spaces in between that matter most on any journey and it isn’t more in your face than on a crowded subway line.

    Great picture and beautifully worded – you somehow articulated my exact feelings when I get on the Tube!

    I love the London and Paris metro system. Not only is it easy to use and with frequent train service, but each stop has its own character and charm. I think I went a little crazy taking photos of the train stations while in Paris.

    Love that sepia tone you got on the metro photo. It’s like time has pass as the train has gone.

      Thanks Sarah! I actually wondered about it but whenever I compared it to the BW it just kept bringing me back. @Sarah Wu,
