subway silhouette

a quiet morning on the B train
we move swiftly across the manhattan bridge
the sunlight reaches inside the train
still, she sleeps.

really loves this silhouette and black and white shot ! very nice, very charming, much atmosphere
your photo remind me of a shot I made of two elderly persons trying to find their seat in the movie theater against the big white movie screen. since my son did not like it, I did not post it ..

Dorian Susan said...

Fantastic shot. Imagine how tired she must be to sleep like that. Love the window framing her.

Anika said...

So pretty christy...along with the words as well. Did you create the silhouette using an app?
Funny but it dawned on me this week that Phonography is in its 53rd week... A project a week in itself! Thanks so much for being such a great part of that!

I love this, it seems such a quiet moment. Great shot!


I am in awe of your ability to just take pictures of strangers, I am so nervous to do that!

Beautiful image...with or without the silhouette effect! On my first trip to NYC, I photographed night-shift workers on the air train from JFK...all sleeping in the morning light.

Cheryl said...

My reaction is...Wow! Beautiful photo of the sleeping woman.
