Driving the underground


Yes "Driving the underground". In fact I was sit at driver's place... This because the Torino underground (actually: one line) is without any driver so there's some place on the top of the train :-) --- Thanks to Ming from New York DP that showing Washington underground recalled me to this photo I took some time ago.

Sì, "Guidando la metropolitana". Ero infatti seduto al posto del guidatore... Questo perché la metropolitana di Torino (al momento con una sola lina) è senza guidatore sicché v'è qualche posto in testa al treno :-) Grazie a Ming di New York DP che mostrando ieri la metropolitana di Washington, mi ha portato a questa fotografia che presi qualche tempo fa.

Really an impressive shot. Speed rendering is well done.

I agree with the above! Great photo of the "tube". My father used to drive the "subway" in Toronto many years ago.

Your photography makes me think of 2001 odysée of the space of Kubrick

At first I thought you meant that you took this while you were driving! It immediately made me think of driving through the st. Gothard's tunnel, which I found a little scary.

I like this picture because the vanishing point is off center. One color dominates but that streak of yellow near the center gets my eye. It imparts more energy.
