Exploring metros

.I think one way of getting a know a city is by taking the public transport. It kinda lets you sneak a peek at how locals go about their daily lives. While I personally love walking to get to places when i'm in a foreign city, I must say I'm also fascinated by the train stations and the people in it. I think i even have photos of every train station (or tram or subway or metro whatever you want to call it) i've come across in all of my travels. Here are a few i've collected so far.

  1. What lovely photographs of metros and train stations, I especially like the one with grass growing on the train tracks!

  2. I love when people try to photograph cities in different ways...taking photos of tube stations is one of them, and these shots are really beautiful and evocative.

  3. Your shots are really excellent. I really admire how you shoot it, it's like a real professional photographer. I'm sorry to say but I love the rural areas rather than the Metro.

  4. I love the liveliness of Bangkok Skytrain, always packed of people and the weather is amazing.

    BTW, your shots are fantastic!!!
