Oh that's nice JM, the train stations in Europe are fabulous, that's one of the huge differences in a fairly new country.

That's terrific, JM! Not something you see in a train station!! I love it! Hope you're ready for a good week!

It's not just a train station it's a work of art. How beautiful a structure to serve such a mundane purpose. But it is such beauty that brings a sense of grace and light into our lives.

This is marvelous. I really need to visit Lisbon some day.

Stunning, and such perfect light. Neither Prague or Vienna, the homes of Art Deco, have a train station this beautiful.

Kay said...

Gorgeous shot, JM! I'd find it impossible to move around this station with a ceiling like this. It would be impossible to look downward, unless the rest of the interior is as beautiful as the ceiling. Great capture!
