A Postmodern Sunrise (D.C. Metro, Panorama)

A panoramic view of a Washington D.C. Metro stop.

 

Best viewed in Extra Large (2982x800) or Original (4521x1213) sizes.

 

This picture was taken while switching trains in the Washington D.C. Metro. My group ended up missing our first available train so that I could get this shot, but it was well worth the extra 12 minute wait for the next train.

 

It took me a while to realize this - and maybe this doesn't make sense to anyone but me - but I think that one of the reasons why I like this picture so much is that, in shape, it resembles a sunrise over the ocean. With the "sun" being the center of the picture where the tunnel ends, and the ceiling sort of bursting out from that one central location as the rays of light... does that make sense to anyone else?

 

This panoramic photo is compiled from 4 separate pictures.
