Riding the Métro by Clay McLachlan
Riding the Métro in Paris is always interesting, never dull, and often amazing.
Sometimes it is crowded beyond comfort as I take my five year-old daughter to school and I wonder why I am so drawn to this place.
Other times I stare out the window in awe as I am confronted with juxtapositions such as this one: graffiti and a majestic corner apartment building seen while whizzing by on the Métro between Sèvres-Lecourbe and Pasteur on the ligne 6.
The light during Paris winter months can be absolutely breathtaking. These moments are amazing.
Technical Details: iPhone 4, Hipstamatic app, John S lens, Ina’s 1969 film.
