All Paris Métros Are Not Alike


I'm learning that each and everyone has their own special flair.  Assemblée Nationale knocked my socks off!

Mon Dieu! What happened here? Someone obviously decided that the meetings at L'Assemblée Nationale are so boring they needed to cheer up [errr... wake up...] les Députés on the way to le Palais Bourbon... Did they succeed? Peut-être que oui, peut-être que non... Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Wouldn't want to be suffering from a hangover in this metro station.

That is one bright metro ;-)
I think the person in your shot may be suffering from a hangover!
Have a lovely weekend.

Yikes! That woke me right up. (Although it does seem like it should be blue, blanc, et rouge.)

Harriet said...

What a jolt to the eye! Can't quite make out the writing above all that color...

Virginia,

That is some metro, probably the most colorful Metro I've ever seen!

James said...

Very cool! I love going to different metro stations. I don't think I've been in this one.

One time when wearing sunglasses in the metro is de rigeur. Makes me want to dig out my old Mary Quant dresses and go-go boots.

Haha! that is so quirky in a very French way, excellent capture Virginia.

Maybe they were trying to invigorate their relationship with Germany, since these are the colors of the German flag.

Vreni said...

Wow, what flashy colours!! I think this is the most colourful metro stop I´ve ever seen.

Leif Hagen said...

Is that Louis XIV style, V de B?
Bon weekend

I love the bright primary colors of this station, all without any advertising in the station on this line (12?) Great angle on this to capture all the graphics!
