47th-50th Street — Rockefeller Center

Continuing my occasional series of subway station shots, this one actually features a crowd of people. It also happens to be my regular every day commuting station where I work. I took this while waiting for my train home, of another set of people waiting for their trains home. The train on the far platform is pulling in, and you can see the people poised to board it, while those on the other side of the platform don’t care, because, well, it’s not their train.

There’s a YouTube video for everything:

The V train arriving here no longer exists since they shuffled some lines about 2 years ago but this is still what it looks and sounds like at the station.

  1. I like this one Mark. Not being a “city based” worker anymore, I sometimes forget the almost “isolated in the crowd” feeling that I would experience on a daily basis. Nicely done documentary.

  2. I really lIke how the bottom of the frame shows the shadowed track area, giving the image a bit more depth and setting. Nice shot!

  3. Wonderful shot Mark. I love the moving train in the background and how everyone is in their own little world

  4. This is way cool, Mark! Love the framing and the resulting drama and tension! Fabulous work, my friend!
