From the World Outside & Into Munich’s Metro (WPC)

Above/featured: U-Bahnhof Marienplatz.

After dozens of visits since 2002 to Germany’s Munich, I’ve become familiar with the city’s transport network. For the city’s residents, the day-to-day work commute from the upside and into below can merge into a monotonous grind. The following images within five U-Bahn or metro sitations might challenge that notion with ghost-like and otherworldly appearances.

Fotoeins Friday: Ghosts in the commute (Munich)

430pm in any large city generally means the afternoon rush is in full-swing. The centre of Munich is unofficially marked by the transport junction at Marienplatz for both U- and S-Bahn trains. When I come up to the underground concourse, a steady flow of people are streaming through, up, and down. That sparks an idea. Ideally, I’d like to have a neutral-density filter to cut down the light by at least a factor of two, but I have the camera stopped down enough that even a long-exposure isn’t completely burning the highlights, although hindsight tells me I could’ve turned the ISO further down. I think my experiment worked relatively well; standing around with a tripod would be far too conspicuous.

I made the photo above on 22 February 2017 with the Canon EOS6D, 24-105 zoom, and the following settings: 1-sec, f/22, ISO400, 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9uF.
