Writing with Light

The Words of the Prophets Are Written on the Subway Walls…..

And the sign said, “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls”  Simon & Garfunkel

So I’m standing on a subway platform waiting for the train to take me to the Colusseum. The train on the other side of the tracks comes in but I’m talking to my husband not paying attention until it starts to pull out and then I look across and see this very cool subway train with graffiti all over it. What happens next…the train pulls out of the station…missed opportunity. After I stop kicking myself I think…well maybe I’ll see another one like it on our way back.

Guess what……I was ready this time!

  12. The urban landscape is a never-ending canvas for all types of artists – including those who create, and those who capture those creations. I dig the moment-in-the-life tone of this shot – makes me wonder what the riders’ stories are, and where the unseen graffiti artists have gone – as well as the meta-story of your being there to record the moment.

    Beyond cool.
