Color (1/7): Subway

Subway

I have curated seven photos for my next theme – Color.

This is the Canal St. subway stop. I was in New York City on business and met my parents. We had a very nice dinner and on the way back to the hotel the lighting, graffiti and subway stop caught my eye. I was lucky that a random person was going down the stairs when I snapped this.

Walking the Dog

Walking the Dog

I took this shot when I was outside on the street in Zadar, Croatia, near one of the old Roman gates to the city, enjoying the weather and scenery. A woman walking her dog caught my eye, they were milling about in the shade, and the light coming in over the gate made for an interesting contrast. I assume she lived in Zadar. Whenever I vacation somewhere, I find the people who live there interesting. I wonder what their lives are like and what their impression of their town is.

Champs Elysée

I love visiting places that hold special memories. While studying on my year abroad my parents and two cousins came to visit and we had an adventure in paris. We thought it would be a good idea to take a picture in the middle of the Champs Élysées. It’s not. As my mom was taking a picture, a huge bus nearly ran us over. You can see the bus in the background of the picture. Stupid, could have been dangerous, but in the end it was funny. Any time I cross the Champs Élysées, I remember that moment and the good times we had.

Waiting

Waiting in Zadar

I have been posting a lot of pictures from the trip to Croatia. It is a beautiful country with interesting things to photograph at every turn. I took this picture while walking through Zadar’s old town. The symmetry of the benches and the signpost attracted by eye. The signpost is leaning slightly, creating just the right amount of tension in the picture. This was another case where I wanted to take the picture without people in it, but since this woman was waiting for a bus, she wasn’t going anywhere. I am happy that she is in this picture. Back turned, you aren’t sure if she is about to walk out of the picture or stand there for longer.
