I will freely admit that I don’t like the Washington DC Metro. Living in the suburbs means you drive and public transportation just isn’t something most of us consider. When I have to go into DC itself its more convenient to take the Metro from my office to the office we have downtown considering the stop is in the building. So with camera in hand off I went.
I almost didn’t publish these because I had my Olympus EM1 with my Nikon 55 1.2 attached to the camera so everything was manual focus which is a bit of a challenge in a dark environment with an electronic viewfinder. I did one set of edits and hated them so I scrapped them and went back in and did them another way that I am more comfortable with and Subway Stories was born. None of the images are technically flawless but its a change of pace of endless flower pictures which I am not really a fan of but apparently I’m really good at shooting.
Staring down the tunnel waiting for the train.
The signs let you know which way the train is heading. If you are public transportation challenged like me they are extremely helpful so you don’t screw up and get on the wrong train not that I have done that (much).
Imagine Tattoo from Fantasy Island going “The Train! The Train!”, If you don’t get that reference here you go.
