There wasn’t much time of a proper photo session in Moscow, unfortunately. The only one was in Moscow Metro circle line–Koltsevaya line.
It took about 90 minutes to hop on and off the train on each of the twelve stations. I wish I had more time but had to regroup with others to see a circus. Otherwise, it could have been a real joy to explore details on the unique decors of each station. More than that, juxtapositions of contemporary local commuters and Soviet Union architectures built during the cold war were truly fascinating.
While taking the Metro, I just couldn’t help thinking of London Underground I experienced the year before. Even though the navigation for passengers couldn’t top London, it was still easy to get around and very efficient, especially, for a megacity like this. And to have permanent public arts (even they were propagandas, then and now) in public transports set Moscow Metro apart from any other cities in the world.
I really busy with pre-production on my final project short film at COFA. It will be shot this weekend. We have to blog as a production log on the school blog. I will post those logs as a behind-the-scene later when it is less stressful. Meanwhile, I try to post picture from my mobile.
I was waiting for after midnight train at Redfern Station. It is the reflection on a telephone booth in the platform. Refer to my previous post, Trip to the Night #1, this is another train-related time killer.
