    Some portraits of passengers in the New York subway. All were candid.

    I like these a lot. How did you achieve that look, where everyone but the center subject is blurred?

    It's a special lens called at Lensbaby. ( http://www.lensbabies.com ). It's kind of a poor man's swing and tilt. $150US. Very manual. But very fun.

    I agree. I didn't see his expression until after I shot these. I was just shooting. Everybody wants to look cool.

    Very nice. I am usually to chicken to take pictures like this. I am afraid people will get mad at me or something. The lensbaby sounds like it would be fun to play with.

    Too cool, and with the lensbaby too, how could they have been candid! It must have shown from miles that you where having a camera to your eye! I really like these, but when I was in NYC of late (why didn't we meet up?), I never really dared to take photos of the kind. Only once I did, very candidly, with my little compact digital camera on my lap, only to receive flak from my husband that I was photographing strangers (groan!). ;)

    I really like those! Wish I had the courage (and skill) to just take shots like that!
