Mar de Cristal Metro Station, Madrid

Mar de Cristal Metro Station, Madrid
Typical of the Madrid metro designs in its great expansive phase from about 1995 to the onset of the recession and, deliberately over-edited by me, this represents a positive, thrusting, energetic attitude that faltered somewhat when the recession struck. However the legacy has left a metro network that, in large parts. exudes a dynamic upbeat feel that is very seductive.
It still needs to be paid for, however!

Hi Marj.
Thank you.
I copy my reply to Rosa who raised the same point;
No, not really ... It is amazingly cheap and the fares haven't risen since 2013! I pay 72 euros a month (say £60) for a bus, metro and train combination ticket for all of the centre and much of the outskirts. I once worked out that I save 600 euros a month. I travel all over Madrid to and from classes and sometimes make 12 journeys a day! 72 euros is remarkably good value!

In the past 10 years I only once bought a ticket on the London Underground. I had to go from King's Cross to Paddington. I think it was in 2011. You could almost have heard my jaw hitting the ground, such was my astonishment at the cost! I forget what it was exactly but it was a far cry from the days when I regularly commuted into the centre (and it was expensive enough then!).
I once thought that the high fares in London were down to the lack of subsidy but I was later told that not only does London have some of the highest fares but that it has one of the highest levels of subsidy too!

I still need paying for too Andy, so many of these great infrastructures decades on still need paying for, in Britain too. It would be interesting to know how many, how much and how many investors are still owed.
Like so many of your images Andy, gets one thinking. What photography is all about.
Keep them coming.
