DC Metro

Washington, DC--The subway, or metro, in Washington, DC, is a new one compared to other cities... Paris, New York, Moscow or London. It is rigid when it comes to the look of the stations, which are very similar to one another, unlike other metros in the world where the stations have a very distinctive feeling. Frankly, I often find it boring. Advertising seems limited and there are no vendors of any kind in the stations. You cannot purchase... anything, actually.

I believe your description, but your picture of it is great. You caught the perfect moment with a magic light!

That is a brilliant photo. Stockholm has a lot of artwork at the stations which is a nice thing.

Como bien dice Vogon Poet, has capturado el momento perfecto. Me gusta la calidez de la luz.

I've thought the same thing - I would love to see some artwork or historic anecdotes about the metro station or neighborhood. With so many transient residents and one-time visitors, it would be a great way to convey the story of DC.
