Selling Snacks, Below Ground

Pastries, nyc
Photo by myself at the subway station of Atlantic/Pacific Street, in Brooklyn.

A woman named Maria sells homemade fried pastries on the subway platform in Brooklyn. She allowed me to take her photo, but for some reason, did not look at the camera.

I see Maria standing here often, during the evening rush hour. She also sells chocolate bars.

I am curious. What did you decide to show this one in black and white. But I admit it is a good portrait of the women with her business.

Hi SC!
I wanted to add a little variety so I made this black and white. I sometimes do it if the color is not so nice, or if there is a distracting color in the background.
Best, K

Since there are millions of survillance cameras, reality shows etc.. everywhere I wonder if people were less shy to photographers before 1960's? That would be the main problem about peoples reactions agaist 'cameras', if there's such a thing occurs..

Hi Ertug,

I think certainly people are more shy and more sensitive now, since everyone has cellphone cameras and digital cameras. It's much harder now to pull off candids these days!
