Trains and Stuff/ Shadow Shot Sunday


For more Shadow Shots go to Heyharriet!


Penn Station. Friday afternoon.


The Long Island Railroad train draws in.


The weather outside is frightful. Such wintry skies over Forest Hills.


The decor of the On Parade Diner on Jericho Turnpike in Syosset is totally over the top.
One of the waiters adopts the pensive pose of James Dean in the mural.

 5pm.Hicksville Station. A chilly sun sets in the direction of Manhattan and its light bounces off the posters and railing.

  2. Always love your snippets of life in NYC! You sure do get out and about a lot. Always on the go. Your life seems very exciting! That last photo is my fave shot. Hicksville station? Is it serioulsy called Hicksville? That's funny! You're not making it up are you? I'm going to google it. I'm curious now :)

  4. Poor Hicksville.
    Yes, it's real and a perfectly nice place.
    Started by a family called Hicks who came originally from England, as all the best people do (hah!)
    There is/was a Hicks farm and nursery garden.
    So familiar with it, had quite forgotten some people might find it odd!
    Robert wonders if there is a Palookahville somewhere -- suffering similarly.

  8. More great shadows Elizabeth, they are very atmospheric.
    Talking of which would you like to blog around the letter 'A'?

    Photos as well if you like?

  9. You and your camera can make everything so incredibly enticing! I wouldn't want to be waiting for the train anywhere but in your photos, especially the pink sunset lit one, I would wait for hours.

  10. Aaah, we share an artist's eye on her world. Wonderful shots - I love the scurry of people in the first as a vivid contrast to the last.

  11. I like the pink bounce of light! Sigmund and I had a very chilly walk at twilight and there were lovely illuminated clouds.

  12. The first photo is interesting and says it all about a station.

    You are very brave taking the shots or maybe you do it on zoom.

  13. I have been to New York once and only for three days-which I greatly enjoyed and want to go back one day. My friend and I caught a train into town from Sleepy Hollow (newly named?) where we stayed for one night. The announcement from the guard was something like, 'This train goes to (insert place names for x's)x,x,x,x and x. If you are not going to any of those places, you're on the wrong train.' A bit harsh but straight and to the point! Love your photos as always, especially the last one.

  18. New York and Hicksville.... not two words that you would normally think to be in the same sentence. Love the pictures, being a little country girl from Kentucky, the BIG city looks a bit scary to me. My teenage daughter would love it, I would be terrified. Even in Hicksville....

  23. Great shots Elizabeth! Especially the last one is beautiful with the sunset reflected in the window.
    So winter still has NY in its grip. Well our spring is also far away.The wind is very cold and biting like frost.

  27. The red sun on this Sunday was magnificent - setting over the train tracks in Greenlawn too,(not too far down the line from Hickville) actually the biggest setting sun I have ever seen, a huge red disk....

  28. You may want to watch Stephen Colbert's show for Monday...a photographer had an unexpected advnture in one of New York's train stations, I can't recall witch. Wonderful photos. Wondering if you enjoyed Philp Pullman's Dark Materials Trilogy?
