Love on the L

The thing I love about New York, which struck me the moment I moved here is the lack of self-consciousness of New Yorkers. They are very comfortable being who they are and doing whatever they do, in any surrounding. I attribute that to the fact that there is rarely a moment when they have the luxury of privacy, so that feeling of worrying about what others will think falls to the wayside quickly, and morphs into 'who cares'. It makes for great people watching, especially in the subways. Take a front row seat and enjoy the daily theatre.

Cool piece Patti, love the way both parties, the gent listening to music and the smoochin couple are in different worlds as if they were each on the subway alone. Only in NY!

This is just great. I love the composition and your description of people's behavior in NYC is dead on! You managed to beautifully capture that. Just delightful!
