In south Florida there are some tunnels like this which lead under a highway to the beaches. They are not as wide as this one, though, nor as well lit and therefore are rather scary. But can you imagine what this would be like at night if it had no lights? Yikes!

good timing, I can't imagine why it wouldn't be full of people, it's an interesting place to be.

c'est une bonne idee, en esperant que cela ne soit pas taggue rapidement.

This seems like a perfect way to decorate an underground passage. In fact, we have an underground tunnel like this in Phoenix that leads from a busy shopping center to a large office and hotel complex across a busy street. It too is lined with artistic tile work.

Nice shot JM! I like the artwork. I'll bet there is an echo in there when it's that empty!

So clean! So dramatic to walk from this out into the sun and sea!

They look nice, and everything is better than a grey dull tunnel!

How absolutely fabulous. Love the concept, love the art. Agree with others, how did you catch it empty?

Randy said...

Arty tunnel. We have a similar tunnel in Haninge.

Fantastic JM, plenty room here for many people heading for the promenade. Busy in summer I bet.
