Photo Thursday: Paris Metro View

I always think of the Paris Metro as an underground system (with those classic Art Nouveau entry signs), but sections of the system run above ground . . . and some of those are pretty artistic. 
This station, near the Eifel Tower, frames a classic Paris streetscape with brilliant glass and guarantees a bit of blue sky every day!

Not a bad way to start any journey.

This is my contribution to Travel Photo Thursday at Nancie's Budget Traveler's Sandbox. Head on over and see what she's posted this week as well as links to images from her friends all arouond the world.

  1. I think if I was to return to Paris I would pick up on details like you've shown that I've missed in the past. You look at everything a little differently once you're into photography.

    1. Yes, when you start looking at the world through a lens, you start noticing more details. . . or at least I did.

  3. Wow, what a great shot! What line was this on?
    You make me want to go back to look for some of these details.

  4. This was taken at the Bir Hakeim stop on the green line in the 15th arrondissement. We spent more time on above-ground lines this time, many of which looked very old (the Bir Hakeim station dates back to 1906), but were also rather elegant in an old-fashioned, neglected way.
