LC-A (Lomography Slide X-Pro 200, Redscale XR 50-100 & Kodak BW400CN)

One of my favourite parts of New York City was the Subway.... & thanks to my LC-A (& her handy light meter) I managed to capture some of my favorite parts... including the rush of a train arriving & departing the station... the yellow green light of the platforms...  (& almost) the sticky humidity of the hot days of July.

I loved people watching on the Subway... such a different variety of people all on the same train carriage... the whole time I tried to not look like a tourist... a art student who is into analogue cameras - yes! Tourist - no!

Some days/nights I was dressed to the nines... other days/nights in jeans & a t-shirt... from 23st to Union Square... from Times Square to Astor Place... always with a camera ready.

Heart NYC, heart the Subway!

Even though I've been to NYC, I actually never took the subway (I doubt my high-maintenance aunt would have ever allowed that). I think you're right--there are always people juxtaposed next to other; it's such a mix of people and cultures and skills and ... everything. The music people listen to. The games they play on their phones. Everything. And I think you managed to capture the rush of the system above. I love the sense of movement. And as for the red? When I finally finally FINALLY get myself an analogue, I want to definitely try it.
