    Squares, stripes and numbers, I like this combination.
    Good selection of shot.

    quite like all the repetition in this, the stripes, the number and the squares. nicely seen!

  • george@minimalistics on 13.06.2010 @ 14:00

    The question is - when will you get the full 100? Another superb picture on the way however.

  • Aurore on 13.06.2010 @ 15:59

    Cool colors, compo and textures !!

  • yz on 13.06.2010 @ 16:59

    perfect

  • Ben on 13.06.2010 @ 17:54

    Very nice capture, the repetition makes it even more awesome!

  • Csaba/EyeVision on 14.06.2010 @ 00:03

    Wow. What a mood. Reminds me of that lost metro station in the third(?) part of the movie Matrix. Well done, great shot.

    marvelous, just fantastic. Its the clinical repetition mixed with the grime and dirt that I like.

  • fabrizio on 14.06.2010 @ 02:32

    nice contrast and pefect frame

  • Devyn on 14.06.2010 @ 06:07

    Nicely seen... This will be my new subway station in a few weeks or so. I love the way they used negative space to create the upper and lower portion of the numbers. Unusually creative for the MTA

  • k@ on 14.06.2010 @ 11:22

    Do you have the same with a repetitive 65 ? I'd buy it, my birth year ;)))
    Great rhythm in the image

    Knock out the little 59, far right, with your little finger. Notice how the composition collapses? The crop pins it nicely.

  • Arjan - PlasticDaisy on 14.06.2010 @ 14:26

    Great shiny image! I really like the abstract nature of this shot, and the recurring 59s are very cool!

  • rian on 14.06.2010 @ 16:28

    you framed this one really well.. nice work, man.. :)

  • mark / one way photo on 15.06.2010 @ 00:52

    As one of your commenters said, it's a perfect combination of shapes. Stunning shot.

  • PhotoGeek on 15.06.2010 @ 08:35

    Another great photo, and under the harsh lighting conditions of the NYC subway system to boot. Love the shape repetition and, as Robin alludes to above, remove even one object from the shot and the entire picture would fail. Excellent vision!

  • joshi daniel on 15.06.2010 @ 08:47

    excellent use of lines and squares!

  • jelb on 15.06.2010 @ 14:19

    Bonsoir,
    symmetry, repetition, but figures that break the rigor..Great serie..bravo!

  • elena on 15.06.2010 @ 15:57

    great compo and texture!

  • Marie on 16.06.2010 @ 04:51

    très graphique, c'est bien vu.

  • Klaus on 16.06.2010 @ 09:11

    like the shinny pattern

  • JJ on 16.06.2010 @ 15:58

    Super shot of this station i have passed through many a time, love the repetition

  • sherri on 16.06.2010 @ 16:23

    I like the way they incorporated the white 59 into the tiles. Makes a really nice image.

  • SD (Aspherical) on 16.06.2010 @ 22:27

    I'm digging all the levels of repetition here, the 59s, the squares, and the diagonals at the bottom. Groovy find.

  • Mark Johnson on 16.06.2010 @ 22:50

    Love it. I would be the smartass that would have this right behind me, then ask somebody if they knew where 59th street station was.

  • Miles Wolstenholme on 17.06.2010 @ 14:53

    Great composition, I love the clinical feel to this.

  • JD on 17.06.2010 @ 15:47

    gritty pic, luv the differing reflection on some of the tiles + the comp!

  • Nestor Antonio on 18.06.2010 @ 09:04

    NYC is fascinating to photograph and the subways stations, each one have his own style, is like a breathing organism beneath the surface of the city. The mosiacs, colors, shapes, signs, shadows and people of the subways stations makes it a interesting character to photograph every day. Great work.

  • Turnbill on 21.06.2010 @ 06:13

    Yes, everything Nestor said! Really lovely splash of color in this.

  • LightningPaul on 13.07.2010 @ 16:11

    4 x 59 ===> cool!
