Subway Impressions

We spent some weeks in New York and used the subway daily. Once my wife was bleeding after she hurt herself falling on the boardwalk; I didn’t know how to help her, but a woman sitting next to my wife in the subway to Queens helped her vs. the bleeding very perfectly; then the woman told us, she had just escaped from the war in Sarajevo, former Yugoslavia, Europe; New York always had a big heart and said welcome to so many refugees!

P.S.:
I’ve been impressed by subways too (New York + Berlin), but never made such a great composition like Russ Rowland with those birds outside the window!

  3. I am glad you had a good experience on the NY subway. It is one of the highlights of visiting and/or living in New York City– it’s like a movie come to life!

  6. Wonderful post. I’m just thinking whether the passengers don’t mind their photos taken. I’m also fascinated by subway/train scenes but I’m afraid to snap photos.

  7. Like the Black Twig I get nervous about taking photos of people – even more so in confined spaces. In yours with the laptop guy it doesn’t look like they would notice.

  8. The birds caught my eye immediately. Amazing shot! I worry, too about taking shots of people. I can’t help wondering if they would be bothered by the invasion, of sorts, and the posting without permission. Although the news channels do it all the time. :-).
