Metro M1/M2 - Total Recall

2009-08-04 9

Driver less trains and stations that look like the setting of sci-fi movie, welcome to Copenhagen Metro lines M1 & M2…

After a relaxing day in Christianshavn, I decided to take the metro back to the hostel. Taking the escalator down into the depths of Christianshavn Station I was first wowed by its sterile stainless steel interior, feeling like the 80’s sci-fi movie Total Recall, if you remember it. Getting of at the next stop it looked just the same as the first one, the third one too. I soon realized all stations here looked exactly alike and quickly became bored with it all.

Getting back on the train, to go to another station where I could switch from the M1 line to something a bit cozier and with stations that’s got character, I suddenly got a chill, realizing I was at the absolute front of the train speeding through the tunnel without a driver. It’s madness! Madness, I tell you! Someone has been looking at too many sci-fi movies and it isn’t me…

    Thanks =))

    @ grenoouille: haha, yeah, I swore to never sleep in a hostel again after this last one, I guess I'm getting old... I actually slept better in Prague where I spent the night outdoors and woke up with all the tourists passing me by looking funny at me...

    Caleb Savage: Into the Darkroom, Out in the Open

    When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.

    Lomo In-Depth: The Defining Role of Women Photographers in Art History

    It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
