One of my favorites. This is what you might call a walk-by shooting. My eye got this little girl from another time while I was walking through a NY subway station. I had my camera dangling from my right shoulder. Since I couldn't stop and point my camera at her (well, I could have but I didn't want to miss my shot or stop) so without bringing the camera to my eye, I just hit the shutter button in hopes of catching the shot. When I opened the file I couldn't see much as it was under exposed, but I was able to bring the image up with an exposure adjustment.

I caught this three years with all the people I shoot anonymously, I wonder who they are, where they are, and if they'll ever come across a photograph I've taken of them.

As you may already know, I have an intimate relationship with the NY subway system. I shot this photograph three years ago. From 1:27PM to 7:26PM I shot 117 frames in at least 13 locations. Previously, I edited and may have posted 11 photographs from this particular day.

This photograph was not one of those. I remembered it clearly when I saw it today. And I think it deserves to see the light of day. 


The image tells a lot about what it feels like to live in New York.
