Entering Hyperspace

Newer Older

In Toulouse, southern France, the unique metro line is entirely driven by computers. There's no human driver. So you go to the front and see the train's tracks.

While chatting with friends, I set the shutter opened for 5 seconds, waited for a curve and click!
There's no post effect!

You may also try my speed tag ;-)

    Eh bé ! La prochaine fois que je prendrais le métro à Toulouse je le verrai différemment. Je vais déjà essayer celui de Rennes qui est plus près de moi, vu qu'au priori c'est le même. Très très bonne photo !!
