Moments on the Metro.

I absolutely love street photography and the concept of anonymity in urban life. Here are a few shots recounting my experiences on the Parisian Metro network.

Although reasonably quick and convenient, I just don’t think it matches other metro/underground networks from other cities…The all too common questionable smells is probably the most unattractive thing…

Emerging from the Darkness

Emerging from the darkness of the Metro into the center of Paris and seeing the Arc De Triumphe for the first time is a spectacular moment. In fact, it’s a spectacular moment everytime.

An absolute beast of a monument, it succeeds in making you feel incredibly insignificant.

Well Done France. You got the point across.

Bloody Tourists.

Most European metro train lines are extremely easy to navigate. The best thing about them is the speed of services. There’s never really a time that you need to wait over 8 minutes for a train.

However, typical tourists hauling our suitcases around (Except Daniel and his stupidly small carry on bag) we managed to cause a huge delay for people trying to get out of the station for a good 5 minutes – and there were only 2 gates leading out…

Now not only did we fail to figure out how to get our train tickets into the gates, but when we finally did figure it out, our suitcases consistantly got stuck because they were too wide.

Bloody Tourists *facepalm*
