Subway Platform

Most of the subway stations I use tend to be underground where there's not much opportunity for taking photos. So, when I'm on when one of the elevated platforms I can't resist snapping a few shots. I always enjoy waiting for the train out in the open, but of course I wouldn't say that if I had to do it all winter. This was at the Beebe Avenue stop in Queens. As you can see there wasn't a train in sight, so I had lots of time for taking photos.

..the charm of the stations: happy, mysterious or melancholy , it depends on the moments (this is very pleasant)

I know well about those underground subway stations after riding the DC Metro for 5 days. They did have something very interesting though. They has pictures on one wall in sucession and it looked like a moving picture when the Metro went by.

It is an interesting shot. I noticed that there is not the lightest green.

I like the peacefulness...no trains, no people, beautiful sky. I think this would look cool and datd in black and white or sepia.
