people on platforms

i used
 to take
 a photo 
on the subway 
every morning
 in
 the subway car

 it was 
for me 
an interesting study 

then i got bored

 it happens

 recently
 i began
 taking photos
 on
 the subway platform

 interestingly
 there is an instagram group
 called
 people of the platforms 

who knew!


that's
what
 new yorkers
 do

 they stand 
mesmerized
 by their mobile devices

 hey
 its a way
 to pass 
the minutes
 til
 the next train
 arrives

  1. Daryl, I thought you had a Matt Damond thing going! Thought a couple of the guys looked like him from behind! But this guy doesn't. Maybe it's just me!

  8. Now you're onto the stuff I love - interiors of the stations (and exteriors, for that matter.) I always find something interesting to observe in a subway or elevated station. People, art, architecture, animal life (one has to look close and not be squeamish, of course)... it's all fascinating to me.

  9. When I see your subway series, or this, or your street scenes it (almost) makes me want to commute -- such great shots.
