Across the Tracks

On the platform
Photo by myself of the subway platform at Union Square.

I liked this photo for looking almost like a play. Any minute, and the leading actor would walk in from the wings.

haha yes you have such a keen eye for these things. You are quite right. Although I think the person who designed the set should remove that ruddy great pillar from the middle of the stage!

I was in London yesterday and it was so lovely to be able to People Watch without it seeming odd. Here I have to be a bit careful - sometimes people start talking to me!

This is one of my favorite views in New York. And you're right, it's almost like watching a play unfold.

Ah, I love the subway, and yes, you are right about the set for a play..although I thought that was the leading lady walking on there with her lilac jacket!

Just curious if you used flash to capture this photo across the track.

I wanted to use flash to capture similar photo while I took the train. But I was so worried the passengers may be upset with me. So, I didn't use flash and my photo turned out lousy. You photo was great!

thanks everyone. Glad that the subway photos are appreciated

Hi JC
I didn't use a flash and never do. I don't like the color that a flash casts on the photo.
If you use a camera that has adjustable settings, that should help you in low light. Adjust the ISO setting to a higher number to make the camera more sensitive to the light that you have
