Abandoned Paris

Over in Paris, like in New York, there are many abandoned subway stations. A friend of mine spends a good amount of time exploring these hidden treasures and recently sent us this picture. According to him this station is abandoned, although not abandoned enough for them to paint the framed advertising spaces white. Before commercial copy could go up for the non-existent audience, artwork was created inside the frames to brighten the day of any ghosts or wayward travelers.
