The Morning Commute on the N Train

Morning Commute
Photo by myself on the subway, near Union Square.

On the subway, it is not uncommon to encounter a whole class of children on their way to a field trip. It looks like a lot of work to monitor the kids so they all get off at the right station.

I'm not sure where this class was heading. A museum? A park? The aquarium?

Unfortunately, I only had one chance to take a photo, because I didn't want to draw attention to myself. Holding onto the pole, my purse and my lunch, on a lurching train while focusing the camera was a little like Cirque du Soleil. All that was missing was a flaming hula hoop.

Happy Friday, everyone!

I really like the last "folksingers" print and of course this one is really spontaneous and vibrant.
If you have yet to buy your new camera to replace your G% then maybe these shots give a significant clue to what may be best for you....maybe a quality point and shoot with manual overide would be better for your style than the Leica you mentioned or maybe an LX5 from Panasonic with great pics but small and easy to use.
Hope you haven't already bought your new camera but if you have then please ignore my comments but then maybe you should ignore them anyway

Forfar

They need a good shepherd to herd all the flock off the subway car quickly!

you captured it!! when I've ridden the subway I am always struck by how many young kids appear to be riding alone to or from school - this group looks like they are headed someplace fun! happy friday to you!
