19/365 I Wonder What Street This Is

One Two Five Street. This angle was unavoidable...get all up close to that sign like I'm about to kiss it but snap it's picture before it even knows what hits it. Talk about foreshortening. I don't have much to say about this picture other than it's quintessential NYC subway, the above-ground platforms. Visit sunny 125th Street! This picture was practically screaming at me. SCREAMING. ZOE. TAKE ME. Wasn't hard to ignore since I was waiting 500 hours for the 1 train. Stupid weekend trains. On a positive note today, I had the immense pleasure of chillin with fellow NYC photographer and flickrite Brock tonight and pieces of our conversation are stuck in my head, which is a good thing. Thanks, my friend.

 

I could write about the different fonts that the NYC subway has used through its existence, and how the MTA invented helvetica blah blah blah but yeah.
