Fotoeins Friday in the Munich Metro: Westfriedhof

I highlight the interiors of four U-Bahn metro stations in Munich, Germany:

6 November – Georg-Brauchle-Ring,
13 November – Lehel,
20 November – Marienplatz, and
27 November – Westfriedhof.

The comings and goings at Westfriedhof station are apparent with this 1-second image. The train station serves U-Bahn lines U1 and U7, and is named for the adjacent 50-hectare (124 acres) cemetery in the western part of the city.

I made the above pictures between 22 February 2017 (IG) with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and the following settings: 1-sec, f/22, ISO500, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ip7.

Fotoeins Friday in the Munich Metro: Marienplatz

I highlight the interiors of four U-Bahn metro stations in Munich, Germany:

6 November – Georg-Brauchle-Ring,
13 November – Lehel,
20 November – Marienplatz, and
27 November – Westfriedhof.

At the familiar orange that is Marienplatz, the U6 train has just departed for Klinikum Grosshadern. Marienplatz serves the U-Bahn U3 and U6 lines, and is also a major transfer hub for S-Bahn trains.

I made the above image on 23 February 2017 (IG1, IG2) with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and the following settings: 1-sec, f/22, ISO400, 28mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ip4.

The above is a shot of the weekday morning 7am commute at Georg-Brauchle-Ring station which serves U-Bahn lines U1 and U7. I used this station to visit the ruins of the Olympiastadion ghost station and memorials to the massacre at the 1972 Summer Olympics.

Fotoeins Friday in Gallup: Hotel El Rancho

(October 2018.)

On our 1-day drive from Santa Fe west to Flagstaff, we stopped in Gallup, New Mexico for a few hours. Only 35 kilometres (22 miles) from the New Mexico-Arizona border, Gallup was once a busy railway depot town big on coal, but now is a stop for weary drivers on today’s I-40 interstate highway.

Hotel El Rancho exudes what we would call “an old-school charm with the nostalgia of driving culture.” (And for effect, we roll the r’s in Rrrrrrrancho.) Gallup lay along former highway US-66, which explains why the hotel was built in 1938 directly in front of the highway’s route through town. It’s one beaut of a throwback.

I made the two pictures on 12 Oct 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-iA2.
