An underpass of the Leppävaara train station in the City of Espoo, Finland, has undergone a renovation project. The project separated more clearly the cycle path and the pedestrian paths, causing less accidents. Also the train platform numbers were oversized so those can been seen far away. In the underpass the walls were painted, urban art was reveiled, as such in the photo. There is a futuristic light installation on the roof of the underpass, which changes colours in a certain pattern.

It had been a long night. My friend and I had entered a 36 hour film challenge for a local film festival. Nearing the 36 hour mark, running on three and a half hours of sleep and twenty chicken nuggets were were ready to export our final video.

By this time, I was so exhausted I felt wide awake (what…? Yeah, I don’t get it either).

Meandering around my buddy’s house (built sometime in the late seventies) I stared into the kitchen, lost in a daze. It suddenly hit me, this is a great opportunity. I LOVE a frame within a frame, so I quickly scooped up my camera and snapped this shot!
