The Weekend in Black and White

Coming from St. Germain and headed for
the Bastille—changing trains at the
indoor/outdoor Gare d'Austerlitz station.

(Tonight I finally saw the Charles Marville exhibit
at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: all
b/w—of course—and absolutely awesome.)

  3. This is like a mysterious scene from an old movie - the beginning or end of the movie. Lovely.

  5. Railroad stations suggest adventure, excitement, with a touch of mystery. Your photo has these qualities. Also thanks for the information on the Marville exhibit.
