Blackout in a metro station

blackout in a subway station

This morning, I was waiting at Saint-Michel metro station, suddenly there was a total blackout of the station from top to bottom. No light in sight. This photo was shot with my Nokia 6682, only a few seconds after everything was dark for a brief period. These are the few lights that remained on for a while. I can’t say how long. Since I was late, I left right away to take another way to my destination.

A blackout like this is not an everyday occurrence, but the place doesn’t look bad with these few lights on. The place where the stairs are didn’t look bad either.

    It looks like the setting for a Bruce Willis movie!

    Yikes – So scary looking! I would lose my mind to be trapped in the metrocar in the dark.

    This photo reminds me of the mood in the movie Kontroll… It was set in the Budapest metro.
