Riding on the Metro

January 5, 2009

The Washington DC Metro carries several hundred thousand riders every week, so these architectural details will no doubt look familiar to some. Every time I visit DC I’m fascinated by the cavernous ceilings of their subway stations, a stark contrast to the cramped old tunnels here in New York. The patterns in the ceiling remind me of something out of a Fritz Lang movie.

Beautiful shots! I'm glad you got a picture of this because whenever I visit I'm with a friend of mine who works for the Gov't and, well my fear of big brother gets the best of me and my camera. Plus I'm so used to the NYC subways, which are much more....relaxed?
