Guest Artist, Ted Looks At The World From Above And Below - Part One

During the busiest time of year, the series of guest artists continue.  Ted Krever rides the trains and tells some tales. 

I've always been fascinated by the elevated trains.
Underground tubes are an inward-looking, hurtling meditation of stainless steel and Plexiglas.

The El is a carnival, a clacking, sparking spidery light show - and a bit of left over Thirties or Forties New York in a world that is stupidly throwing those days away.

But either way, the subway is magic to me, menacing and wondrous.

Love this. Impressions of light and noise. I love the subways too. My favorites include the slow sweep of the 7 train as it moves across Queens and views the Manhattan panorama, and anytime the G train rattles into the station on time.
