Sepia Saturday

2015.05W-38

Tunnels are perfect devices for storytelling, seemingly neutral spaces that can lead someone from one world to another. They can also look rather cool and evoke mystery and adventure. The ones I’ve found for Sepia Saturday, though older, have a sci fi vibe to them. I can envision them in Doctor Who or a retro sci fi movie along the lines of Things to Come.

  1. The machines they use for excavating tunnels these days really do belong in sci-fi movies.

  2. They are lovely tunnels. I love the rhythm and repetition of the images, and I especially like the middle photo, the Swiss Guard Tunnel, looking out from the inside toward the end of the tunnel. That arch is fabulous! I think it helps that it’s in black and white. It gives a feeling of misty mystery.
