Photo by myself on the subway, in Brooklyn.
I'm not sure whether these two people knew each other or whether they were random strangers. They were certainly in the same frame of mind at the end of a long day.
The subway can be seen as an extension of the New York City apartment. People sleep there and entertain there, they put on their make up, read, eat, knit.
So if it seems like this blog shows lots of photos taken on the subway and subway platform, you know why. The subway plays a huge role in peoples' daily lives and is usually the fastest and most reliable way to get around the city.
