Métro Line 6, near Nationale

I dragged poor hubby out for a walk with me yesterday - he's been spending too much time indoors watching rugby matches on the tv!

On my way to the Gare de Lyon last week, I had spotted some street art out along the métro line 6, as a lot of this line passes above ground.

Anyway, I had planned to go back to for some photographs. Whilst there, I discovered that there had been a street art campaign in this area (13th) but once there, I found it difficult because of the size of the art, and the fact that they were all on the sides of buildings (high up). But I'll post one or two of what I captured, over the next couple of days. In the meantime, please consider this one ... taken as I stood underneath the metro line, trying to decide which direction to go first!

I now need to go back to the area, as I realise that there are many that I did not see ... something to do with having hubby around and a deadline to get home to see the Scotland/France rugby match, live on tv. Scotland won, but it was a very close match! Nerve wracking!
What a fabulous b&w image Issi! Your photos of Paris make me want to visit. Not sure why I have never been ! Fav!

first of all, you drag your husband away from the tv, then you say he was in the way, I never understood girls, and I have been married to one for nearly sixty years. And Scotland were lucky to win. Different next match.

@peterday Peter! I agrée and know that the game against England will be different ... and the result too, most likely, BUT I don’t agree that Scotland were ‘lucky’ to beat France. I believe they played better, although both sides made a lot of mistakes and neither side played particularly well. It was a very exciting 2nd half, and Scotland dominated. 😄

Great capture and yes, the Scotch played better!

Love the processing. And those columns are a form of (official) street art themselves. Or perhaps that's what you were implying.

@jamibann I am glad Scotland won, but I still think they were lucky.

Bridges are such fabulous structures Issi, I really like the symmetry and leading lines you captured here. Well done!

Fabulous shot! Love the symmetry and leading lines. Especially like it viewed on black! :-)

Ha ha, I have a hubby similarly engaged with the rugby!! I love this shot, and the little bollards further down almost seem like miniature people.

It's nice how they used decorative columns to support the train line. I like the vanishing point in this.

Wonderful shot, Issi!

Classic POV for this type of structure, made fresh by the unusual (to me, at least) combination of rivet era construction with fluted faux stone columns. Fav
