I was out and about on the metro yesterday for a doctor’s appointment — I finally remembered to take my camera with me so I could snap a bunch of a shots for a new concept rendering I’ll be working on in the next month or so. The metro system tunnels are, simply, just really cool and unique spaces. I would think (and hope) that most tourists would find them really memorable. I know I see them all the time and sometimes forget to take note.

Just a guy riding the metro, going somewhere to jam. Wouldn’t want to have to carry that case around during rush hour…

Just your average trip on the metro. Jammed in like sardines, and a banana.

These canopies at the NY Ave-FL Ave-Gallaudet Univ metro station look like they are competing for air rights. Funny thing is, water drips through the slots when it rains, rendering it less of a place to head for cover, and more of an area where you can play the “avoid-the-waterfall” game.

Go into the light!! Huff it up those broken down escalators!! Try not to be slower than those behind you. Love the commute…

…shot while exiting the metro at New York Avenue/Florida Avenue/Gallaudet University. This red line stop, which opened in 2004, happened to be the first in-fill station in the metro system, filling the gap between Rhode Island Avenue/Brentwood and Union Station.
I know it isn’t Halloween, but I still love these.

We have posted in the past about local artist Diabetik. This morning on my way to work I saw one of their candy-corn streetcones had migrated from the traffic island just north of Dupont Circle to the mezzanine level platform at the Dupont North metro entrance. I’m assuming that this was not an installation by the artist, but rather the work of a WMATA employee that needed a streetcone to mark the manhole cover, but perhaps I’m wrong. Either way, seeing this little guy at the bottom of the escalator made me smile and was a pleasant start to the day.
….though now I have a strange hunger for highly processed seasonal candy….

Another from the unintentional faces file, which many people might recognize from DC’s metro cars. I always see this little guy as a wide-faced robot, spewing forth a little beam of light onto the floors where the doors open, helping people find their way, without anyone even realizing he is down there.
Ok, now back to work.
