Photo of the day – Lyon metro

Every now and then an image shows up in the Flickr Gadling group pool that knocks my socks off. This is one such photo, snapped by Flickr user baby_mongster. It depicts a short woman in a light raincoat against the straight-forward 1970s modernism of the Lyon metro system. This composition, reduced to black-and-white simplicity, is starkly beautiful.

A modern setting that also looks old-fashioned is doubly appealing. It says: Here is the future, and it looks somewhat old.

Got an image that depicts something modern that is no longer all that shiny? We thought so. Submit it to the Gadling group pool on Flickr. If we dig the image we’ll select it for a future Photo of the Day.
