In a Station of the Metro

The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.

~ In a Station of the Metro, Ezra Pound

A station of the Washington, D.C. metro line.

[EDIT] Decided to bring color back to the train.

I thought it looked familiar. I've been to this DC station too ^^ Had a picture of it in my gallery, though just taken on a phone.

So... I've featured this in my journal :) [link]
I love how the shadows seeming to leak into the picture and the curved ceiling combine to frame the rest of the image. The people create a lovey effect too (ghosts and motion blur)

I've never been on a metro and this makes it appear beautiful.

why thank you :)
I was rather surprised how this shot came out. I wasn't looking through the viewfinder when I shot it, and it was very spur-of-the-moment. I set it up on the directory map and took a quick shot, and was very pleased with the result so I didn't try for another.
I love spur-of-the-moment shots. If something is beautiful enough to make you stop and take a picture then it is bound to make a wonderful picture. Plus your not as dissapointed if it doesn't look right. =)
