Since it is a holiday in the USA and my traffic was down, I spent the morning and afternoon doing things, like laundry, which are terribly boring but necessary. After I escaped the laundromat, I ended up roaming the subways and began planning a route so I could photograph the tile mosaic artworks on several subway platforms for you all to enjoy. I aborted part of my originally planned route because it was taking so long to get around, but I still managed to photograph three platforms, so stay tuned to see which of the platforms I am presenting to you tonight!
I have come up with an idea for photographing the subway art series, though. Since I am pinching my pennies, I try to combine all my subway trips with other necessary trips, to reduce the cost of transit. However, I was looking at the NYT map and realized today that I can actually photograph quite a few of the subway platforms for only $2! It does take a little planning and knowledge of the NYC subway system, but it’s really not all that difficult. So I have been planning a few photographic forays into the wilds of the NYC subway system in search of artwork! This actually sounds like fuin because it relies on several things that I enjoy; maps, artwork, photography, public transit, and .. a challenge! Now, if only MTA provided wifi so I could check in at each station along the way and make this into a real “live blogging event”!
