Repairing the TTC Subway Tunnel

A TTC crew working to repair the electric functions of the subway at Runnymede station


I can't remember the last time I shot in the TTC. I was on the way to shoot some stores this morning when I caught this at Runnymede station on the Bloor-Danforth line. The workers didn't seem to mind that I was taking photos of them which is always nice. I shot this subway station once in 2006, and again in 2008. 

Small layers that exist in certain images are always interesting - especially when those elements are isolated. For example, the men in the tunnel, the subway operator, and the children in the window; aren't aware of each other but from this view they all can be seen at once. Things like that have always made me stop and look at photos for longer periods of time rather than just skipping them... or maybe I just read into it too much.
