The morning commute is usually very quiet, with people tuning into the news on their devices or perhaps even a book, or catching the last bit of a nap.
Partially out of view, a man was reading his ipad. You can see the ghostly glow cast on his face.
There are periods in the winter, where you barely get a hint of sun. There is a five-minute walk to the subway, then tunnels, then a five-minute walk to the office. Some office workers stay in for lunch and eat at their desks.
I think this is why people are in their grumbly moods.
