As a New Yorker, I spend a lot of time on the subway – lately it seems like more of it is spent waiting than actually riding.  While looking at the layers of peeling paint on many of the poles and supporting beams on the platforms, I couldn’t help of thinking of that game we’d play as children, trying to outdo each other with images we’d see in the clouds.  Much of what I’ve seen in the subway tends to be abstract, but every now and then, there’ll be an image:  a bird, a boot, a sea creature, a face, a broken heart…  So I started photographing them – every week I’ll post a couple more.  Except for some cropping, the images are pretty much unedited.  Let me know what you see!
