I've been taking occasional subway pictures for a good
many years now. Here's the best of 4 from one day...
8-21-2006. In Vancouver, B.C. I've not yet had to opportunity to do so in NYC. But i'd imagine that in NYC as well people on the train are now more likely to be absorbed with their electronic devices than with their. Rows of people behind their newspapers is a vanished sight...

Capturing the magic moments underground has been a passion of mine since the early 90's.

This was taken in the Fulton street station in New York around two summers ago. It was inspired by the fleeting arrival of long awaited subway trains, and made possible by luck. This fleeting coming and going of a long expected object I feel is deeply tied into New York city in general, as this city - that which never sleeps - is full of these fleeting moments. One must always be on their toes to catch them, and then once they pass, ready to move on again in search of another.

I've been photographing the NYC subway system since the late '80s. This photograph was taken in 1995 and is part of an ongoing photographic essay, simply based on my exploration of NYC through the years. As a native New Yorker, born in Brooklyn in 1954, my inspiration for all of my subway photographs comes purely from my love of this majestic city, it's people and it's history. It's like no other city in the world. I'm honored and blessed to have been born in this great city!

This image was taken early October 2011. I was forced to follow the contrasting colors.

I was on the subway platform on Sunday and noticed the reflection of the tunnel and the woman in the plexiglass. I thought how interesting to capture the train coming in the station. It reminded me of the energy of New York City and how meditative we need to become in the middle of this chaotic state.

This image was taken in late August 2011. At this time I was focusing on intimate moments, that which resembled what I am looking for in a relationship.

This image was taken in late June 2011. I was intrigued by the way she was sitting. She looked tried and upset as do many New Yorkers on there way home.

Spooked at night on the subway, but not in the way I used to be told to be.

#4614:

Another moment: eye contact and a smile from a near-stranger in a subway station. Sept 2007. He's a subway musician, waiting for another
audience when the next train arrives. Embarcadero station,San Francisco.
Using an actual camera this time. it was, as Mr. Davidson describes "about a personal quest to discover color, meaning , and humanity in the maze of Subway tunnels, station platforms, passage ways, and train interiors."

The man's body language says it all. The other man at stage right still has a long wait for his train.
May 20011, Concord Station platform, two stops from the end of the line. It's the last partially-urban station before
remote suburbia.

My first trip to New York, the subway system is amazing, but hated all the stairs to get to and from it

Looks like no space is left unused, it was my first trip to NYC and the subway i was surprised to see them selling magazines and sodas in the rest rooms.

RedRainBart:

A classic "decisive moment" where a number of picture elements come together for just a moment.

On a rainy morning in October 2005, reading the NY Times digest on my Palm Zire, I glance up and spot the light coming thru the red
umbrella, the lady's body language..and light coming thru the guy's newspaper. Time to get off only one shot with the zire's primitive 1mb camera,before my train pulled out of the station. The other train leaving the station,the red destination sign,and the spotlight on the stocking cap of the man watching the lady were pure serendipity.

Obviously not NYC, but it IS an "interpretation of the teeming, vibrant, transportation systems that criss-cross our urban environments."
In this case, McArthur Station platform, Oakland, California.

Today an IPhone would capture a much higher quality image.

Went to visit my son in NYC and everywhere we went we took the subway and there it seems everyone is in their own little world even when they are in the same place.
