grand escalier

Looking at the outside of the Cité metro station,
with its original Hector Guimard Art Deco
entranceway, you'd never think that the interior
looks like this.  I've never used an
elevator in the metro, but you can see why
I might be tempted to here.

[It's Ruby Tuesday; to see more, go here.
For more of Our World Tuesday, go here.]


  1. Very pretty, and for sure it's been renovated like the Saint Michel one. I remember the latter 'back when' in the 60s.

  2. I love taking photographs in metro stations. So many cool things to shoot. Great perspective.

  3. very nice photo; have a good Tuesday

    much love...

  4. I swear I think I"ve called this Chatelet before, but we all know I'm challenged. And BTW, I HAVE taken the lifts at Abbesses and Chatelet!

  5. this isn't an easy image to capture. Nice job Alexa, I'm intrigued!

  6. Love the red stairs! Like the way you framed it.
