Amidst the chaos that is Penn Station and the subway below, I was shocked to see a platform void of people, except for this single shopkeeper, quietly writing in a notepad. I quickly snapped this shot before moving through the mob of people behind me and swiftly leaving the station. Now, I look at it and I don’t hear the screeching trains and chattering crowds. My muscles don’t tighten from the anxious buzz of the city. I see a shopkeeper writing in his notepad. That’s it. And for once, I feel that the rest of the city is asleep.
Great composition. Almost looks like they’ve cleared everyone out for a movie shoot.
