steps in the dark
After a short time when @haydennee, @dyph3n and me sneaked into this "standard" Stuttgart subway tunnel, we heard some steps from far away. We were listen carefully if those steps coming from the station or from inside the tunnel...it was obviously from the tunnel. The reason is simple: When you walk over the tiles (between tracks and the wall) they make a loud, typical sound from the underground.
A few seconds later, we saw at least 5 (security?) guys with torches, running into our direction.
We realized quickly what happened so we ran back to the entrance from we were coming from, chased by underground staff.
Luckily, this exploration had a good end with out being catched. ☘️
Picture 1: adventure time
Picture 2: showtime(!)
So this time, we sneaked into this new subway tunnel with our friends from Paris.
One of my most memorable missions in this tunnel. And it WAS actually a MISSION.
@destructive_influence and me planned how we could enter the tunnel during night time so we can catch the last trains to get some longexpos. Unfortunately our "old" entrance wasn't possible anymore, they've installed a CCTV right in the tunnel, so we would get spotted for sure.
Luckily, the "Stammstrecke" tunnel (which is since they've built this tunnel not in use anymore) gave us the opportunity to hide there, think how and how long we shoot inside and how we got out without being spotted.
Our first attempt failed, because @destructive_influence was 99% sure that we shall go to the left😆 I said, we MUST go right.
We tried it anyways, our entrance was now 10m away, then I realized that that's the wrong way🤦♂️ I said "stop stop, that's the wrong tunnel!!" We ran back, waited another few minutes and eventually we took MY suggestion and went to the right. I knew that I was right from the very beginning, sneaked so many times into this tunnel that my brain created a virtual plan from this tunnel system ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ You can see in picture 2 the entrance how we got inside the tunnel without destroying anything or being seen.
I took this shot seconds before we decided to go in (2nd attempt), after the train passed.
Group shot is coming tomorrow✌️
