A little story I’m about to talk about called “My Time On Photography”.
Photography has been something I love doing for a good amount of years because it helps me express myself in my own perspective. It makes me think about adventures I need to create so I can have a story and meaning to it. The adventures you seen on my website so far are basically NY stuff and I plan to create my own adventures outside of NY soon hopefully. The photography I do is mainly Trains, Parks and landscapes and to me is actually fun
Most of you guys already know that my interest to the NYC Subway is what got me into doing photography in general
One of my early photography photos
And seeing city scenery can be also fun for taking pictures.
I capture what I see in my eyes, I capture most of the stuff based on my feelings or the meaning behind it. Alot of times as a photographer, you need to have feelings for the stuff you capture so you can show your own view to it and make it work so it can see your side of it
The places I’ve been to, my stuff that I post and the sights I’ve seen will teach you guys meaning behind it all.
My latest article now is called “My Summer Soundtrack (As Years Pass By)”. I’m going to be talking my summer throughout the years, my favorite photographs I’ve taken including the best times I had so far.
So let’s start 2003. My 8 Year old self took a selfie on the W Train and the funny thing was the word selfie wasn’t even a though yet back then.
Fast forward to 2008 now. Even I started taking some pictures in 2006, I never got into that much until 2008 when majority of my photos was train photos. I still remember being in Middle School going to the YMCA Afterschool Program but never thought photography could be for me. Here’s a photo during the time I got my mom to go to Brighton Beach with me for some photos
And other one of my favorite photos I took in 2008
In summer of 2009 my mom and I went to the Transit Museum Event touring 207th Street yard. I remember how rainy and wet it was outside and despite the bad weather, it was worth attending. Here’s a photo at the event I took
2010 was kinda an interesting summer as a few major changes happen
I got my first DSLR (Nikon D40x)
The V And W Trains were eliminated due to budget cuts
I graduated 8th Grade
Here’s the photo after I rode the last W Train with a few railfans
And few other photos that happened that summer as well
Summer 2011 I started hanging outside alot more and I started to somewhat get into digital photography more than before.
2012 I met a girl named Krystal Pinto who has an amazing tattoo and she let me took photos of it.
As for the subway, a few weird stuff has happened. R32s and R42s running on the A Line making a little more than have the fleet and R46s ran on the C.
Also my first time going to the new Yankees Stadium so here’s a photo I took of the field.
And more 2012 photographs that made my summer highlight that year
2013 Summer was my last summer vacation before I started my senior year at High School but in another school. Let’s start with the Mermaid Day Parade I went to photographing mermaids and such.
And then R32 Subway Cars started to finally run on the J for the first time in many years
Then here’s the Cory Monteith tribute party at Central Park
And the first time since 2008 I took a trip to the Aquarium to photograph all of the cool sea creatures.
And other photos from that summer
My next one is 2014 the year I graduated High School and started to market my photography out there. I did my first model photoshoot with Dani Bre and she awesome. Make sure to check out her portfolio too
Then a couple days after the photoshoot I met Christa Brown and Tori Leeds visiting NYC from Florida. They let me take their photo and to make things more awesome they shared the photo thanking me for taking the photo
Also got some Fourth Of July fireworks at the East River
I finally took a picture of my favorite YouTube singer Danielle Calato after coming from auditioning for The Voice. She has an awesome voice but didn’t make it
She even took a selfie with me lol
New York Fashion Week also occurred right before summer ended
My other Summer 2014 photos I took
And now…2015 summer. Even though its still going on, a few things has happened.
First I finally got into the backstage to get photos of the Mermaid Day Parade performers before the parade started.
June was also the month I met and talked to people about my photography
I also pulled an all niter taking pictures all night that cost me my sleep (I didn’t sleep for 40 hours lol)
Hungout with a photographer named Danielle Salah. She’s an awesome photographer
This is the spot we took photos at
Did my first Night photoshoot in July with a model (Not my first photoshoot in general though)
And the rest of the photos to end the article
Thanks for reading this. My passion for photography has gotten stronger and more dedicated to it in the recent years so thank you so much for reading.

Yep alot of stuff went down on 7/10/2015 with the subway. Due to a switch outage at 135th Street the following changes happened.
Southbound A Trains ran local from 168th Street To 59th Street. Rockaway Park A Trains didn’t run.
B Trains ran between Brighton Beach and rerouted via the R Line between Dekalb Avenue and Whitehall Street. PM Rush Hour though every other train still went its normal route Uptown due to bad train congestion at Whitehall Street
C Trains ran with extensive delays
D Trains Southbound made a station stop at 135th Street. PM Rush Hour Express Service In The Bronx got suspended and a D Train Northbound I was on went local from 59th Street to 145th Street due to a huge gap in local service which was crazy.
