What if the metro wasn’t so anonymous, after all?

Meet Gloria, a Chinese Student living in Paris, encountered on April 13th.  Meet Cheikh, a lawyer by day and a musician by night, encountered on April 8th.  These snapshots are from l’inconnu du métro (“the stranger on the metro”)—a blog that features a daily portrait of a metro passenger who has caught photographer Marie Dinkle’s eye.

Another favorite of mine is “Love is in the RER”, a flickr page that showcases photos of couples in the RER subways.  Reminiscient of Doisneau’s famous improvised portraits of everyday couples, these blogs remind us that poetry isn’t just on earth, but underground! 😉
