Mid-month theme - subways. Metro station Sèvres Babylon.

Normally I should not be posting today, but the 15th of each month is the day for the mid-month theme – “subways”, which I share with bloggers in NYC and Stockholm – and, as from this month, also Budapest. There is now no restriction concerning any more specific subject – the post must just relate to anything concerning “subways”. You can find today’s posts – and some other subway related posts – by using the following links:


(As I recently have changed blog, you can find my older subway posts under the following link: PHO.)


My only photo (exceptionally) today is from a very colourful metro station, Sèvres Babylon. Normally the tiles should be just white. Here they have been partly painted.
This is the station you would use if you go to "Le Bon Marché", the first Paris department store (1887), certainly one of the best, situated on the left bank, whereas most of the others are on the right bank of the Seine. Gustaf Eiffel made part of the plans. I should make a post about it one day.

C'est une station que je connais bien, car ma Mémé étant une ancienne couturière avant d'être concierge, on allait souvent acheter du tissu au Bon Marché pour qu'elle nous confectionne des robes, à moi et à ma soeur. Toi aussi tu connais Andréa Gerak ! Elle fait partie de mes favoris depuis le début de mon blog, disons depuis presque 2 ans.

Smile, you are on camera ;o)

I must agree with the comments above, you have a beautiful subway in Paris.

Happy subway day!

They sure think brilliant, in terms of color. Wow. I am impressed.

Happy Father's Day to the fathers in your family and to you, Peter. I know you don't celebrate our Father's Day but you should.

I hear cardinals, Carolina wrens, grackle babies wanting fed, and other nature sounds and the sky in the east is getting brighter and the air is cool and the doors are open and so are the windows. I am blessed on this Father's Day morning.

Salut Peter, merci pour the welcome!

This one is very nice with the colors! Or, better say, it would be very nice WITHOUT the advertisements...

Hey Claude! :-))

Mona said...

That is a cool subway Peter. Your camera has captured the curve fantastically!

Ps> yes, that was a photo of the dome of Taj Mahal taken from my terrace indeed! :)

Superbe cette station Babylone, en plus, c'est un nom qui fait rêver.
Liège aussi, c'est pas mal, mais moins bien éclairé.

Olivier said...

je trouve qu'avec leurs vieilles mosaïques, beaucoup de stations de métros parisiens sont vraiment tres belles.

Ash said...
