Hamburg’s HafenCity Universität Subway Station

The subway station “HafenCity Universität” in Hamburg was the place where I took the CE marking photo from the last post. But I liked the light installation down there so much that I took a few more pictures of it. The changing colors are reflected on the ceiling and the walls and make it look like three additional beams of light are coming your way towards the exit:

On a weekday around 1pm, there weren’t many people there. But the two or three people I noticed all seemed mesmerized by the light and the colors. One other guy was also taking some photos but left quickly. The platforms look very symmetrical, except the escalators are installed only on one side of the stairs. This bothered me a bit because except for the escalators, the whole place offers perfectly symmetrical photos.

Once again, I couldn’t resist correcting the symmetry in post processing. For the blue image, I mirrored it along the middle and copied it over to the left side. But because that looked too artificial, I removed some parts of the copy and let the original shine through. So it still isn’t perfectly symmetrical but you can only notice it when you look very closely. A bit of an Easter Egg, I guess.
