*Berlin Train Entering Station*
What can I say ? Those yellow metro cars fascinated me, and also created a perfect contrast vs. people. I took a rather unreasonable number of those…
Fuji x100s, 35mm, f/2.8, 1/60s, ISO 1250
I’ve always had this fascination for the really deep escalators of the London Tube. Every time I go there I try to capture the steep ride, this is my most recent attempt. I remember being even more impressed by the Moscow underground escalators when I went there 15 years ago. I didn’t do much photography back then, sadly. I’ll have to head back there, I guess.
Nostalgie de Paris
Canon A2, 50mm, f/8, 1/250s, ISO 200
Film: Agfa Scala 200
Just before the summer I finished a roll of one of my favorite slide film: Agfa Scala 200. I remember walking back to St Lazare, past Trinité and thinking the alignment of the Metro sign with the Trinité Church bell-tower would make an interesting composition. Months later, after scanning the film, I have to agree with my past self. I’m in two minds whether the slight aperture blur of the Church is too much, just right or not enough, but I guess it’ll give me an excuse to experiment further next time I’m in Paris.
Strings in Châtelet
Fuji X100S, 35mm, f/5.6, 1/60s, ISO 6400
In the Châtelet metro station in the center of Paris you will often find these string formations, who I suspect are music conservatoire students, playing the standards of classical music. I was strolling past last time when I stumbled upon them and decided to take a few shots. I’m still amazed at the quality of the x100s shots in low-light. I only noticed while processing that it was ISO 6400 and I couldn’t believe it…
