toeing the line

Not unlike Mörby centrum, Solna centrum subway station offers its own line up. Several of them, in fact. Having taken subway line #11 here and found a properly directed line upwards, travelers might as well form a neat line themselves to ascend from the platform in due order. Last in line, snap a photo please!

Wow! That's a fantastic shot, Per!!! Everything is shinning on that photo! Great work!

Carrie Flicka said...

Nice shot! You always find such nice color contrast.

Love this picture! The red and stainless steel look very modern.

It's nice to be able to peer into the Stockholm underground, via your blog. :)

It's an amazing station so don't be surprised if it shows up again here before you can say "mind the gap".

JM: Some aspects of the photo were composed but the best part was pure luck. Those guys entering the escalator in the right moment and that girl lifting a camera... they made my day.

Carrie Flicka: Thanks. This is the kind of station where you just release the camera and it'll go snapping by itself... ;)

Halcyon: There is a political side to some of the artwork down there which feels totally outdated but you're right about the colour and the overall impression.

Belgrade Daily Photo: The subway is certainly one of Stockholm's better sides and we're happy to share it with you!

Thanks for stopping by. And don't forget the local escalator rule: you stand to the right and let people in a hurry walk on your left side... ;)

Mmmm - håller med de föregående talarna, det är en härlig bild. Lysrören stjäl lite uppmärksamhet, men...det är ju bara jag, The Major Photoshopnörd, som tänker att man skulle kunna testa att tona ner dem liiite lite grann... ;o)

Bilden är fantastisk med sina linjer och det varma röda till den svala metalliska rulltrappan - och jag undrar så vad kvinnan i rulltrappan fotograferar...!

Vik hädan, fotoshoppare där! ;)

Hon är kanske helt enkelt fascinerad, som vi, av den mystiska röda sagogrotta som är station Solna centrum.

Det var tveklöst linjerna som fångade min uppmärksamhet. Lite halvt abstrakt hade det kunnat bli om man jobbat vidare med motivet.
