City Daily Photo Theme Day - Transitions


I have a love/hate relationship with the Paris Métro. The endless stairs are very challenging for me, but on the other hand, it's an efficient and affordable means of traveling the city. The real bonus is that often various metro stations feature interesting displays, like this fabulous series of Richard Avedon's photographs in the Hôtel de Ville station. These installations create a lovely transition from a mundane place to wait, into an underground musée!

Today, I join my City Daily Photoblog friends around the world for yet another Theme Day. Click HERE to see their take on our first of the month theme.

Looks good. You and I have different attitudes about the Paris Metro. I love it. Wonderfully designed, wonderfully convenient, stays on time, goes nearly everywhere you want to go.

Jack,I agree, but as issued, the many stairs are often a struggle for my bad knees.

Art can transform any place into a more pleasant experience. I like your originality here.
