Photographer's Note


My third post from my three days in Paris is more of an experiment. It is taken in the subway station Trocadro, when a train was leaving the station.
It's the second time I try and post such a photo, the first one can be found here: At restad Station.

Le Mtro de Paris is the most important way of transport in the city. It had 16 lines with a total length of 213km and 298 stops. The first line was opened in 1900, the most recent line (14) opened in the late 1990ies. The metro has 4,5 million passengers a day and is operated by RATP (Rgie Autonome des Transports Parisiens).
As said, this picture was taken at Trocadro Station, close to the Eiffel Tower, named after Place de Trocadro and opened in 1922. Trocadro is a stop at metro lines 6 and 9.
The train you see here was line 9 heading for Pont de Svres, our train in the other direction (Mairie de Montreuil) came shortly after, which would take us to Station Strasbourg-St. Denis, where we had to change.

The word 'mtro' and the name of the station gave me to opportunity to create this portmanteau-word as a title. :-)

I hope you like this photo!
