Default The second Indian Summer is almost over...

Because we got some very nice weather (about 15c on day time) for the last couple of days (which is more than rare here ... it is usually < 0c), I took my time to go to work and took some shots in the LRT (subway) and outside.

The is a shot taken in the "Bay / Enterprise" station. I really like the shiny side of this station and I'll come back to take more picture when the train are running more often.

I really like that photo especially considering the poor lighting (for photography) typically present in subway stations.

I had to chuckle though - in the Washington DC subway system I'm pretty sure your camera would have been confiscated if you had taken that photo. Much more paranoia here than in Canada I guess.

Got a real tunnel effect with that lens.....

Sorry couldn't resist. I like the shot, reminds me of the Paris Metro stops.

In fact I did took pictures in the Washington DC subway almost a year ago .. without problems. However, there is no way there will be nobody at 7AM!

I like the shot dynamics with all the converging straight lines and the contrasting curve of the roofline.

But it must have been hard to capture that shot with absolutely no one else in the station. Just how early did you have to get there to have an empty station? Also, with the dim light, what exposure settings did you use?

For the time, it was about 7AM (just before the University students are showing up). Edmonton doesn't have a very long subway system (but it is in expansion right now), so it is pretty quiet hour rush hours. As for the settings, I will have to check it out ... I'll come back to you!

FYI, I used my E-520 with thje 12-60mm lens.

Nice perspective...!

Reminds me of some of the video games I've played...
