A couple months ago a spent some time in Europe. After a flight into Lyon, I took the Lyon-Saint-Exupery train to Grenoble. The train station is a short walk from the airport and designed by acclaimed architect, Santiago Calatrava. Like many of his designs, there’s a strong resemblance to a bird in flight. However, unlike some of his more recent designs, the Oculus in NYC or the Milwaukee Art Museum, there’s more black and less white giving it a bit of a heavier feel.
First, a couple shots from the platforms on each side of the main hall. I lucked out having some sun, making for some nice shadowplay. And, you’ll see, a draw to symmetry in all the shots.
And now a couple shots from inside the main hall of the station.
I was so exhausted by the time I arrived here, plus bogged down with a lot of luggage, that I didn’t shoot as much as I’d like to. Maybe I’ll be back one day under better conditions 🙂
