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!

    I love the surreal like quality of the first photo…reminded me at once of Alfred Hitchcock’s film…haha! Thanks by the way for visiting my blog on Changing Seasons / the Philippine lemon flower.

  12. 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. :-).

  13. 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.

  14. 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.
