So its been awhile since I actually post a blog entry. So here’s one I had to write about. As of 5/25/2014, The MTA New York City Transit M60 Local Bus has been discontinued and has now become a LIMITED Stop Select Bus Service. For those who don’t know, Select Bus Service is where you pay your fare off a machine on the streets and you MUST show your receipt on the bus so you can go through or get a $100 fine. The M60 Local bus debuted in 1992 and back then used RTS Buses. Now today, M60 contains ONLY Novas LFSA (Articulated Buses). I remember riding the M60 as a little child to the airport back when I was probably 5-13 years old with dad. The bus ride was a good experience. Even though the M60 is still running as a select Bus Service, it won’t be the same anymore. However I was lucky enough to ride the very LAST M60 Local Bus to ever run before it became Select Bus Service. It was a night I’ll never forget and was able to ride whats now history.
Here’s the full story on how “Daniel Smith Photography Productions” started so sit back and relax
It all started in 2002 (7 Years Old) when my interest of the NYC Subway was still growing, I started to visit those NYC Subway fan page websites such as ttmg.org and nycsubway.org which contained a lot of subway photos as well as looking at the old SubwaySpot.com and nycrail.com (Which has vintage 1990s photos). It got me into doing Joy Train riding which was fun and exciting for me and every year, I would try to explore and learn new stuff. But I felt like something was missing when I did those trains but WHAT? I needed to record these adventures with pictures and to do pictures I needed a CAMERA. When the new R160s (New Technology Subway Cars) were being delivered, It gave me the opportunity to photography trains including the old subway cars that were going bye bye for good. And from that point on that change the shape of me. It wasn’t until late 2008 I got my real non cheap digital camrera “Insignia” and then in early in 2009, the Nikon L18. When I got the Nikon L18 that changed a whole lot out of me. I grew a larger appreciation of photographing trains (Especially 2009-2010) and I learned more about improving photos and stuff. Around mid 2010, after I’ve gotten my first DSLR, I started doing photographs of nature and parks and sometimes beaches and people. The nature walks (Which I still do today) is good and relaxing for photos including Central Park. Today in the Present, I’m still learning ALOT more photography (There’s no such thing as never learning), And I’m trying to get into photography when I finish High School. Photography is something I will NEVER Leave.
