This has a painterly quality to it that I really like!

Thanks Peter. Truth be told, I tried some softening to minimize the blur that resulted from a slow shutter speed and train movement. But not infrequently, I enjoy photographic images that appear to be taken with some other medium.

Yes to Peter’s comment: painterly and engaging. I especially like the way the denim and that sweet square of yellow light look they were borrowed from Vermeer.
Thanks, John. Pleased that you noticed the yellow light, which comes from the “Watch the Gap” warning stripe on subway platforms throughout the system. That element was the primary reason I chose this image over two earlier ones taken while the doors were still closed and the train in motion.
It would look good hanging in the same room as your “Red Car at Sunrise”
… and “Palm Reader”
Just beautiful. You’re an Impressionist with a camera, Degas on the IRT.
Degas and Vermeer — who knew? Thanks for placing me in the same subway car with such august company.
