Very cool! I love that little bit of blue near the vanishing point.

Oh, man, that's a great combo of curve, gold, textures, and lines. And yes, a touch of blue. This one's especially nice, Ken.

The rich colors and unusual point of view really draw me into this scene! Will you consider entering it in my 'Weekly Top Shot' meme? We're on Week #21 and I'd love to see you share with me and my readers! Here's this weeks' link: http://www.theviewfromrighthere.com/blog/?p=6603

Great picture! I like this station, & the little restaurant right next to the tracks.

Sensory evoking of an urban Rockwell homecoming, most provocative and enjoyable.

I like the colors of the picture, I am always struck by the subway stations, and its people, I found it super fun to see the variety of cultures coexisting together.

I've never been to this station. It looks like a nuclear zone!
Were you standing on some steps when you took this? It looks high up.

This is WAY above the speed limit.

Great shot. That was my childhood (and teenage and young adult) station -- when the neighborhood was Flatbush not "Ditmas Park." Kind of looks like they haven't painted it since then.

Fantastic photo, as always. Thanks for the memories.

My spouse, who probably was on the same train as Fat Al, agreed it's much the same. He'd ride the local to and from Brooklyn Tech H.S. and this was a local stop. He thanks you for the chance to once again be unhappy with the local!

Fat Al said...

My other favorite thing about the Cortelyou Road stop is that it kind of redefines the concept of "local" -- since the next stop toward Manhattan (Beverly Road) is precisely one block away.
