Leaving NYC In An Underground Fashion (8/21/2013)

Okay so it was not too long ago that I shared some mass transit visuals with you all when I was heading out to an art opening in Long Island City. I called it a “A Few Minutes On The #7 Train” for lack of a better description and felt that there were a couple of other instances where I wanted to do the same thing. I head upstate to see friends a couple of times a year and the ride that brings me there along the Hudson River is nothing less than amazing. This clip however is from an entirely different vantage point and brings you along with me to the Underground as my train makes its way out of Grand Central station.



The last time that I went up there I remembered liking the visuals a lot more than I did for this particular visit so I am guessing I was on a different track. It feels as though you are traveling through a dark and eerie city when you are heading out so I pushed my little Sony Cybershot to the very dirty glass and pressed “record”. Mind you some of it is darkness and some of it a little cloudier than I would have liked as the little camera struggled to focus in the dark. Like I said this was just to share the time and also to continue to experiment in this fashion. I think it might have come out better had I used the Lumix since that is a tad more powerful. In any case you have this for the time being and might want to try it yourself. One of my future goals is to get a video when I go over the Manhattan Bridge. If I capture it you can count on my sharing it here. I do them because we have such a worldwide visitor base that its fun to have them along with me and spark their own interests for when they visit.
