Portrait of Style, on the Subway Platform

Cool Cats, in Brooklyn
Photo by myself on the De Kalb subway platform, in Brooklyn.

A group of seriously cool cats graciously allowed me to take their photograph while we waited for the train. Each person displays his own distinct personality.

The fellow on the right is currently living in New York. His friends were visiting from nearby Washington DC and Philadelphia. Together they were so photogenic, they looked like actors on television or a musical group.

Sunday I was in the office to do some extra work. So sad! I was excited to take a nice photo before hopping back on the train.

The Portrait Series is a once-in-a-while installment, featuring New Yorkers encountered on the street.

You are so inspiring me to get bold & take some portraits Kitty. I LOVE this.
So sorry to hear you had to work yesterday, but I am glad you took some pictures on the way home - a great antidote for the drudgery of life.
& yes, it snowed here again! Yuck!

Hi Kitty! That's very good! They really look like some kind of a band! Did you ask them for the picture? Brave you are!

Great job. Did you have to take a lot to get one this good--all four expressions, sharp detail?

Kitty said...

Thanks everyone!

Lily, I hope you take some portraits soon. It's fun to actually meet people in the process of taking photographs...it is an added dimension I didn't realize was even missing.

Hi Washington
I don't know about brave, these fellows were friendly and a little flattered that someone would ask to photograph them!

Hi Banjo
Since the photo was posed, I only had to take a couple to make sure they were good and in focus. A candid would have been a different story altogether, since it's dimly lit on the platform.
