Readers' Showcase: Philip Ewing

Dysfunctional management, underfunding and years of neglected maintenance mean that riding the Metro today can be a nightmare. Delays, which lead to overcrowded trains and platforms, are sadly common. Photo and caption by Philip Ewing

DPR reader Philip Ewing found he had little time outside of long hours at the office to spend on photography, so he turned his commute into a time to exercise some creativity. Each day he brings his camera along with him on Washington D.C.'s Metrorail system, where he photographs the Brutalist-style architecture, morning rushes and evening light of the Metro subway. He shares the best of his shots on a blog called the Metro Commuter.

Take a look at the slideshow above to see some of his work and read more about his project in our Q&A.
