more fishing

Still don't have access to my regular computer, but nonetheless, life goes on.

If you haven't checked out "Express Train", please do so. It is one of my favorite photoblogs. It's the blog home of Travis Ruse, who posts one photo each day, taken during his daily commute in the New York subway system.

A quick glance is not enough, as with most blogs you must spend some time and watch the story evolve over time. Writer William Least Heat-Moon would probably refer to it as a photographic "deep map" of the New York Subways. Many stories are played out and you are only limited by your imagination as to the storyline. I am reminded of the old TV show, which would proclaim at the beginning of each show - "There are a million stories in the Naked City".

He started one year ago in December, with the express intention of posting one photo each day.

Thanks for the link to those subway pictures. I have never been on a subway so it's quite interesting. I have been sitting here for 10 minutes looking at the pictures and I'll have to go back further and look some more!!

Great website. Thanks for the link. I use the subway all the time and I recognize a lot of the stations. There may be different storys in every picture, but do you notice the expression on the faces, there all the same.
