DP December Theme Day: A photo of people from the waist down.

This month's theme was taking a picture of people from the waist down. I figured the best way to capture this theme would be on the train, or "my" train: the N line. Additonally, this is an important photograph because these specific trains have already begun being phased out. Just a couple of days ago the new trains were brought in for the N and W lines which are also used for the green 4,5 and 6 lines. Now you get to hear an automated voice informing you of the next train station rather than listening to a mummy like voice :).

Good Month! - Καλό Μήνα!

Way cool! I enjoy being able to see this (I've never been to NYC and environs), especially since it's now "vintage."

I wonder, did anyone think your photographing in the train was a bit unusual? And, it does look very tidy as jing suggested!!

Yes, this photo says Queens. I had a client in Queens several years ago and traveled the subways. Thanks for sharing.

I know upgrading is good, but somehow it seems sad to leave the old ways behind. Nice shot.

Interesting photo, I didn't think these old trains were still operating as N trains. I thought they all transitioned to the R160B trains by now.
