Thursday's commute - mostly the morning near the E train platform although the last image was taken on track level as I was trying to board a train late and still get a seat. Another straggler commuter going the other way.
For months I have been experimenting with light levels at Penn and elsewhere and I like certain places. Some places have bad light and "blackberry light" is finicky - not too much and not too little. Some LIRR platforms have a quality despite the dimness and the yellow floor paint sometimes hums. The lighting requires fewer subjects - when you get a crowd the quality gets blocked by a sea of dark coats.
So for now, certain places and some amount of panning. I still shoot others but spend less time there. I really do not shoot for that long each day and a lot of it driven by when the next train is available, particularly at night.
