Took this pic in NYC a few months ago. I have no idea who these people are, but for some reason the shot feels natural and the colors of the subway (kind of greenish/yellow fluorescent lighting) really come through on this one.

In the early 80's the "look" of New York subways were awful. Photographer Bruce Davidson captured some of these images in a series of photographs that were displayed at the Hermes Gallery in NYC for the past couple of months. Here's a sample. When you see these images it's amazing how much cleaner and brighter feeling the subways have become in the city. Good job to Mayor Guiliani who seemed to jump in and clean the city up - and not just the Subways but the crime rate, murder rate, etc...
