TSC: looking down

Riding down the (seriously long) escalator at the Porter Square subway station.

(the escalator is apparently 143' (~43.5m) long; the lower tracks are 105' (~32m) below street level)

(best on black; another trip down the escalator in the notes)

Taormina, Berny, Indycaver (Norm), and 11 other people have particularly liked this photo

Wonderful - I was always amazed at how steep and deep these escalators were when I went on the Tube.

Very good, both, but I think the one on the note is better.

Folks, once again I recommend you look at this only one eye open. That way it is maybe easier to sense the depth on a two dimensional image.

Thanks! There are things I like about both... I added another note from that first ride, from higher up; in those, you definitely get more of a sense of how high up you are, but I kind of like the angle on this one. Also, the other ones had way too many people... ;)

(and I tried the one-eye thing, but it looks the same...)

Nice looking down. I think the one in the note is much better because one has more length to look down

Wow - really a long ride down! I like also both in the notes - they show the length a bit better!

great the way you've kept the horizon line, makes the image flip between going up going down and travelling along a tunnel, quite M.C.Escher . .

I like the one where you get the longer ride and more people going the opposite way.

The first one in the note has that something that creates even more distance downwards. Good shot(s) anyways !
