MONOCHROME MONDAY # 18



Posted by Picasa
Two clocks on one platform at Gare de Lyon station.
Don't waste your time looking at the clocks, if the train is still along the platform, you already get one chance to get on !

Deux horloges sur un quai de la gare de Lyon.
Ne perdez pas vitre temps à consulter l'heure, si le train est à quai, vous avez encore une chance d'y monter.

  1. Just the kind of shot I love! All that black, and the angular pattern of the roof, and then the circles of the clocks - wonderful!

  4. Very quaint - two clocks. Somebody was concerned with symmetry.
    Makes a good picture

  5. Wonderful view and clocks!
    Formerly I was often in Paris, because a friend lives and works there. Now she lives here.

  6. Looks like a mirror image, but the clocks read the same time.

  9. Catherine, you took this photo in these days, but it looks like an ancient image: very nice. There is a good perspective, and I like those clocks with Roman numerals.

  10. J'adore ces vieilles pendules. Gare de Lyon, gare de Lyon...serais-tu d'humeur neigeuse?

    Sinon, il n'y aucune régle pour blogger, moi je ne blog pas le weekend, car je m'interdit l'ordinateur le weekend. Apres il y a les règles quand tu es taggués par quelqu'un.

  14. I love this. the two clock make it look like a reflection. Can't quite figure out why they thought it necessary to put tow of them right there together like that, but I'm glad they did. Maybe they just knew it'd make a cool photo!

  20. Nifty one, Catherine. Great for b&w and also for evoking some sort of train ride in Europe, like maybe to Istanbul on the Oriental Express.
