Morning commute, Babylon line 8:12 westbound.
The other day I was coming home at normal rush hour and I photographed a hand bag (in great light) across from me and some accountant type man asked me if I knew the "lady" and he told me if it were his wife he would be angry. I showed the photo I had taken to the subject and she did not mind. Chivalry in a cheap silk tie.
Has left me cautious though, particularly on my commute train. The BB makes a noise -a click, and I usually have my iPod on so I do not hear it, really. I have not taken many picture on the train since this incident.
Later trains are better - the crowd is drunker, happier and more tired and louder.
These photographs were taken on an F train and the F cars have fluorescent lighting. I rode the 6 line recently and they have the same cars as the newest E trains.
Back to MOMA - all but the one with the painting were taken at the The Erotic Object: Surrealist Sculpture exhibit. Great lighting there and the visitors do linger. Check out the link if you have time.
The beauty of the MOMA is its lighting and the fact you can take pictures with almost no restrictions. The click does not mean anything, everyone is taking pictures.
Maybe not accountant types. Cheers.
