Recommended Posts

This was a blast guys. It seriously was. I had a lot of fun and we managed to catch some pretty decent stuff.

 

 

Here's my (A)(S) photos

The slants were out en masse. So this was awesome.

Ken, you were our "good luck charm"! Those guys came IN NUMBERS (despite the fact there are supposed to be 9 sets left). I see myself. Ha. (I'm in the black coat, to the others)

The T/O's looked at us like as if we were crazy. I mean, 7 cameras angled at them!

Great pics!

I'm just glad that weirdo cop stopped following us. -_-

 

He's doing his job, but not in a civilian-friendly manner. .__.

I'll get my pics up probably over the weekend.

 

The FIND was amazing when the train had its lights off the whole time! The effect was best at West 8th!

My turn!

Today was really fun, railfanning with Henry (MTR), Leonard (Forest Glen), Dylan (Smoot), Ken (fortitude), Kevin (AWWang), and John (diffusedmind). We covered a lot of ground and got quite a few nice catches too. The day started out dreary, but got better after around 1:30. For me, it would have been better if my pics didn’t come out too under/overexposed and my camera actually worked more often – since it was cold today my camera froze often if I pressed down on the shutter. I missed a lot of good shots, but still managed to get many others. Here are the pics (be sure to check the other forums for bus pics):

Great shots. The cyclone and wonder wheel shots are fantastic. did you take them from a subway car?

Thanks! And yeah, we did. I took them from the (F) which is on the lower level of that trackway. If I took them from the (Q) (the upper level), then they would've come out better since there would have been more light and no obstruction from above.

I am so tired from that trip I am going to bed right now.

 

I can hardly read. I'll image tag most of these tomorrow:

There are also some videos in there!

I must say I had the greatest time, perhaps surpassing all other experiences I've had in New York City.

 

Let's do it again sometime!

Putting aside the photos of the trains, those really are the best in terms of artistic composition. That is what it is all about. You never know what you take. If I were you, I would certainly enlarge and print them. Great work.
