About A Roaming Urban Gypsy

I am The Roaming Urban Gypsy

My specialty is Street/Urban photography, a genre that lends itself to the quirky and unusual inhabitants of the Big Apple. My photographs reflect the eclectic people and places within New York City.  My Subway photos reflect the offbeat nature of the New York City Subway system ~ A Virtual treasure trove of Eclectic Abstraction.

 

The photos are in random order because like the various trains I ride on daily, I never know who or what I might meet on any given day.  This is a coalition of disparate images whose common thread are the trains, the same trains that connect New York City’s variety of cultures.

I use abstract elements so the viewer will form their own street and/or subway story inside their minds imagination using these selections.

New York City subways, trains and platforms and the great melting pot collage that reflect its ridership provide never ending sources and venues of Big Apple’s quirky and unusual inhabitants. Much maligned and cast in an unfavorable light being compared to the fairly pristine Washington, DC subway system New York’s underground transportation system has a flavor all its own a result of over 110 years of moving Gotham’s diverse city dwellers hither and thither. Our underground rails are a network of arteries and veins that keep time with the pulse of the city.

My photographs reflect the eclectic people and places within New York City.  My Subway photos reflect the offbeat nature of the New York City Subway system ~ A Virtual treasure trove of Eclectic Abstraction. Distinctive.  Everybody can be a star on the platforms and cars filled with a captive yet every changing audience. The New York City subways are a series of cities within the major city.  Out of hundreds of subway snapshots I’ve taken over the years I chose these because they showcase the whimsical, wacky and the sublime.

To Paraphrase an old TV program there are 8 million stories in the naked city but each one unique and singular in its depiction, depth and understanding.

Please enjoy my slices of the Big Apple served up for your viewing pleasure.

    1. Thanks. Not as old as my other blog but I really enjoy photography and I’m leaning more towards this creative direction. I began Roaming Urban Gypsy in 2015 and have been going full speed ahead since then. I have also considered showcasing my works in a gallery. Will let you know when that venture appears. 🙂 ❤
