Plastic railway station

I'm not a great fan of fake tilt-shift photos but in this case the scene looked so surreal that I just knew I have to create one. This is Atocha Railway Station in Madrid. The building in its current shape was opened in 1892 (the original from 1851 was destroyed in fire). There are many old railway stations but this one is unique - there is a small jungle in the middle of it (you can see it in the photo above). This small tropical forest looks so weird and so surreal that it's really hard to believe your own eyes. The drawback is that it's pretty hot and stuffy inside.
