Subway Tableau #2

New York – Times Square – 42nd Street Station. Each tableau tells a story. You just need to look carefully to find out what it is.

I still have a few shots that I’m working through from my last trip to New York. Here’s another from my subway series.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Up, Down & Signing Off

I’m getting ready to head out for a couple of weeks. I’ll be travelling to Israel and hope to come back with lots of images to share with all of you.  Look at my new travel companion….

Canon, 5D Mark 3, DSLRYup that’s the Canon 5D Mark 3. I just bought it last week and I’m very excited to give it a run for its money while I’m away. I’ll do a full review when I return.

I’m not going to blog while away but I will post regular updates to my Edith Levy Photography Facebook page and my Instagram feed.

If you’re wondering what the “Up & Down” is in the title of this post it refers to the image below. I will leave you with another shot from the New York Subway system.

NYC Subway Tableau

The New York subway series continues! This is probably one of my favourite shots…so far.  This is one of those images where the moon and the stars and the sun aligned.

Just as I pressed the shutter, the man on the platform decided to give me a little wave. I waved back just as my train arrived.

50th Street

What attracted me to this station at 50th Street in Manhattan was the Alice in Wonderland murals on the tile…also the cool looking underground 🙂

Downtown Trains

I don’t know about you, but I find that when I repeatedly visit a place I find new subjects to focus on (pardon the pun) and I become slightly obsessed with photographing that subject. This happened on my trip to New York a couple of weeks ago. This time my obsession (ok obsession might be a bit of an exaggeration) was the subway.

I’ve taken the New York subway hundreds of times but this time was different. I didn’t just ride the subway but I looked around me and I paid attention. I paid attention to the entrance way, the stairs, the murals, the signs, the people. I shot lots of frames. I’m not thrilled with all of them but I certainly came away with some keepers. Over the next little while I’ll be sharing some of them with you. Let me know what you think. Let me know if you would have shot or processed the images differently.
