The art of transit

photo by Gilderic Photography, via Flickr creative commons

In my role as chief Metro blogger, I see an awful lot of escalator photos — and Metro certainly has some big ones — and most of them aren’t very interesting. But every so often I come across one on Flickr that’s pretty good, such as this one from Budapest, taken in 2007. Nice lines and use of the flat but bright light.

To submit a photo for the Art of Transit, post it to Metro’s Flickr group, email it to or Tweet it to @metrolosangeles with an #artoftransit hashtag. Many of the photos we’ve featured can be seen in these galleries on Flickr.
