Angel in the S-Bahn

Sometimes there are benefits to carrying your camera around during your normal commute. I’ve shared photos from the amazing Munich underground (U & S-Bahn that is) with you before, but the public transit is just such a way of every-day-life in Munich. Besides, I like the dreamy effect in this photo. It’s amazing just how much is connected in Munich. Yesterday, I talked about the 1972 Olympics in Munich. It turns out that the S-bahn was introduced in 1972, as a project to improve infrastructure for the Olympics – along with the new airport, hundreds of new hotel rooms, and the creation of the Olympic village that is still used today by more than 10,000 residents. The S-bahn, combined with the U-bahn which started operation back in 1938, make it one of the best transportation networks in the world.

Dear Munich Daily Photo
I am very much enjoying your daily images of Munich, a city about which I am currently writing a new guidebook called "Only in Munich". I find many of your images to be out of the ordinary, and further enhanced with your extensive photo captions.
Many thanks for all your efforts and keep up the good work,
Duncan J. D. Smith (Author-Photographer)

I agree. I was in Munich this weekend just gone, and the U- and S-bahns are fabulous. Certainly much much better than Glasgow's underground (which I really must take a picture of one of these days).
