Arts et Metiers, ligne 11

A station of the Paris Métro, serving Line 3 and Line 11( photo is of line 11)

 

In 1994, To mark the bicentenary of the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, the station was redesigned by Belgian comics artist François Schuiten. It is clad in copper panels.

I discovered this station through Flickr and decided my next visit to Paris, I had to schedule time to go and shoot it. I turned out that this station was just a couple of stops away from our hotel when we stayed over Christmas.

Overall I wasn't happy with my Paris photos but the shots I took at the station made up for all the others!

This one is a HDR from 3 RAWs (on tripod) with Photomatix, finished off in Lightroom
