Bad metro rider

Bad metro rider
Originally uploaded by In Shaw

This is not a good picture, but I really hate photographing people. The guy in black stood in the door for at least 4 stops pleasuring his cell phone. Regardless if people were coming on or off the train he’d hold his arm out fingering his cell phone, and physically blocking half the entry with his body.
Now you say, that train looks full. Not that full I was hiding behind some people while trying to snap this photo. He was on the train when it wasn’t full, blocking the doors. Even as the train filled up at Gallery Place he did not move or shift or do anything to acknowledge that maybe people might want to get on/off the train.

  1. I enjoy being extremely obvious when I take pictures of ill-mannered people on public transit. Hopefully it makes them think a little about why they may suddenly be a spectacle.
