The awesome roof of the train station in Lyon, Southern France. The outside was fantastic too, but unfortunately I was there on an overcast day and I just couldn’t do it justice :(

    Mieke, Very eye catching pattern. Do those chevrons diminish in size or is it an illusions of a wide angle?

  • Thanks, Bob! They actually do converge on the entrance way – well spotted! It’s such a cool train station. Would love to go back on a sunny day to get the outside of it!
