The art of transit

There is no shortage of photos online of the artfully designed Washington D.C. Metro — and most of the images tend to be very similar. I thought this one took a fresh approach by not trying to capture the symmetry of the station. The lighting is nice, too. The image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D.
