There are a lot of photos floating around online of escalators and stairs in subway stations, but relatively few of them manage to be good. Here’s a nicely composed one taken this month in the Washington D.C. Metro. The photo has great lines — the composition is well balanced — and it’s also a good use of the silhouettes of the riders. The photo was taken with a Leica D-LUX 4 point-n-shoot.
To submit a photo for the Art of Transit, post it to Metro’s Flickr group, email it to email@example.com or Tweet it to @metrolosangeles with an #artoftransit hashtag. Many of the photos we’ve featured can be seen in these galleries on Flickr.
