Blog posting every single day can be difficult, mostly because I have to come up with a new idea every day. Sometimes I just pick a file folder and pray there's some inspiration. Other times I hit my old negatives or slides for something that interests me in that moment.

Today I tried something completely different and thankfully it worked out. This time I thought it would be fun to see what I shot on this same day but a different year. Luckily, I had my camera out in New York on April 7, 2013 and actually took one of my favorite photographs.

I saw this beautiful girl in the subway looking like she had time-traveled from the distant past. My camera was on my shoulder and I didn't have time to get it up to my eye. My only chance was to guess the framing, snap it and hope it turned out. 

It did. Better than I expected.


Seconds later, I clicked one more time in her direction. She had taken her hat off and was on her way.
