On the Subway Platform, Below 34th Street

34th Street, nyc
Photo by myself, on the 34th Street subway platform.

A woman wearing a mouse hat was focused on whatever she was playing on her phone. As usual.

It's getting much colder here, so people are wearing their hats and down coats and scarves. We're waking up to temperatures in the upper-30's (F), or 4 degrees Celcius. Brrrr.

At this time of year, the subways suddenly become smaller, since people are about 20% larger than usual.

I love your statement about people being 20% larger, Kitty. And maybe the hat's a mouse, but I saw a koala when I first looked at the picture. Stay warm. It's cold here in Chicago too.

I'm avoiding my down coat for now! Love that hat.

I am still in denial of our impending Winter-
but your game playing woman looks quite content & cozy.

I am sure that a lot of people from all over the world would like to have an exit to 34th street. Great shot as always.

For those who live outside NYC, the MTA painted those large yellow lines on the subway platforms because so many people on their phones were falling over the side.

Nice picture. The temperatures are the same here, 5 degrees C, brrr.

Great shot Kitty! I think the hats are the best part of winter photography. Stay warm. I decided to pass on the Leica DLux6. I got one from B&H Photo and gave it a good tryout for 3 weeks. I just couldn't get used to the small size. The images were great and the lens was super fast and sharp but the lack of something to hold onto just did me in. I think it's because I never owned a point and shoot camera and have just come to expect something clunky to hold on to. Oh well… Have a happy Thanksgiving.
