Last night, I was out with some people who were discussing creepy photographers who take picture of strangers on the subway or in other public places. I raised my hand and said, “Umm… I fully admit to being that person.” One of them looked at me, wide-eyed, and exclaimed, “YOU’RE THE SUBWAY CREEPER!”
There. It’s out there. I’m the subway creeper.
And it’s totally worth it.
Below, I’ve posted four of my favorite sneakily (some may say creepily)-shot photos for your viewing pleasure. I don’t know any of these people, and none of them knew I was taking their picture. (The guy on the bottom looks like he’s looking straight at me, but I was very far away. Zoom lens FTW.)
Enjoy the voyeurism.
How have I never seen these before? Amazing. These are the sorts of creatures I imagine are perpetually flitting about the edges of your imagination. (And by the way, if you ever want to gift me with a print of that first one, I wouldn't say no.)
