New York City is where all the good photographs hide, just waiting to be found. I don't live as close to the city as I used to, so riding on the Long Island Rail Road has become a necessary evil. I read books, watch movies, play games, sketch out ideas for projects and mostly wish I was anywhere else as the train slowly chugs along, inching closer to my destination.
Fact: More than 1,000 punch shapes are used on the Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road. Almost as unique as fingerprints, the shapes identify which conductor punched a ticket in order to keep customers from reusing tickets from other trains.
