Photographer's Note

Lisa (delpeoples) has been patiently waiting for me to upload some photos from her beloved city of Naples.
Well, here you go Lisa :) I'll post another one or two as well in the next day or so.

Before arriving in Naples I did what I always do, research online for interesting or strange places/subjects to photograph.

This came up on my search - its the entrance to the underground subway station in Naples.

In the photo you can see the long lines which are the escalators, which have awesome white glass and lights to make them stand out. While up in the ceiling you can see the large Blue Egg shaped subject. Its actually a large whole in the ceiling, going up about maybe 15-20 feet to the road up above. Think of it like an upside down Ice Cream Cone, large opening as you see it here, but getting smaller and thinner as it reaches the surface. The white light you see in it is a small opening on the street level, like a window.

Seeing this woman photograph it reminded me of some alien sci-fi movie or something, as if she's about to be beamed up into space.

We literally stood down here for about 10 minutes photographing this thing, and everyone who came down or went up the escalator copied us and did the same lol
I guess they were all intrigued by what we were up to.

Lisa has probably seen this before, but I was hoping to show something unique from Naples - let me know Lisa!

thanks for looking

PS
I will upload some wider angle versions in the WS
