Anybody that rides the New York City subway knows that it is ripe for people-watching. When I’m looking at people on the train, I often wonder where they’re going or coming from, what they go home to, and what their story is. You can sometimes get a feel for people by how they interact (or don’t) with others on the train, their fears are, along with their prejudices and their joys.
This past Friday, I was on my way to the art supply store to get things for the upcoming show when I decided to snap pictures of the people I saw. I discreetly photographed people who were sitting across from me with my handy iPhone and managed to capture some nice, intimate shots.
I loved the colors in the above shot; the green of the book complements the blue seat that the rider is sitting on and the red shoes set everything off, which is why I call the picture Red, Blue & Green.
Notice how this guy has all the space in between in and the passengers on either side of him. Space is a premium everywhere in the city, especially on the subway on a hot summer day.Same goes for the other shot below.
There’s always a story on the subway.
