These are two pictures I really like for a couple different reasons.

Yeah that was me who stopped; dead in front of you at the top of the subway steps to snap a picture with my blackberry. Shoot, I don’t care, when I see something that needs to be captured, I do just that. The first picture was taken at the 125th Street on the concourse level going down to the platforms. I think what what attracts me to these pictures and photo opportunities is the shape of stairs themselves: they always create symmetrical pictures, which makes your eyes dance around to find the subtle differences. The stairs also create an interesting perspective, it’s the instant wide angle effect- look how small the guy in the white shirt looks even though he’s only about 15 feet away. The second picture was taken from outside of my school…you would think I went to Pothead Academy, or something based on the name, right?.. You wouldn’t imagine how much of a temperature/atmospheric change it is once you get into that shade at the bottom of those steps. It’s drier and like 5 to 10 degrees cooler, with a breeze. But that’s in the summer, it’s probably 5 to 10 degrees warmer now.
